I completed my Bachelor of Science in secondary education with a major in integrated science and a minor in chemistry at Central Michigan University in 2009. I received my Master of Science in Educational Leadership-Principalship from Saginaw Valley State University in 2013.
Since completing my undergraduate degree, I have been employed as a full-time classroom teacher working with a variety of classes at multiple grade levels. Courses that I have taught include high school general chemistry, physics, and astronomy, as well as 6th and 7th grade general science and 6th grade crime scene investigation.
My passion for teaching science stems from a deep-seeded desire to understand the world around me. I recall having countless questions as a child about topics ranging from animal adaptations, atoms, and the universe at large. Discovering answers to these questions has always been an empowering experience for me, and I have found my calling in cultivating this curiosity within those I teach.
In my spare time, I enjoy coaching basketball (I am the head coach of a 9th grade basketball team during the winter months), playing sports (basketball, golf, tennis, etc.), and, of course, learning more about the wonderful world of science!
