My Teaching Mission:

I love to teach life science. My dad was my biology teacher in high school and he inspired me to want to also teach. Every car ride was a science field trip with our family, identifying plants and animals as we drove. In addition to wanting my students to love science and the natural world, I want my students to know that I care about them and am here to help them as much as I can. Making relationships with students is what drives me to teach. I also want my students to become good citizens as they transition into the world by teaching them respect, honesty and a good work ethic.
