I am a fun loving person that is serious about learning. Everything in science can be made into a fun project. I want my students to learn and to have fun, which is why sports often leads into learning about one's self and subject matter. Plants and animals offer a tremendous opportunity to learn.
I have been awarded Conservation Teacher of the Year, State Golden Apple Teacher, taught grades 3-11, and all classes have achieved above state standards. I also have worked successfully as a Biologist for several big companies.
