Growing up I was the kid that would come home from school and then play school with my little sisters teaching them all the amazing things I learned at my school. I love learning and I love the sharing of knowledge. Nothing beats the feeling of seeing a student have that aha moment and helping them learn the tools they will need to succeed.
I am a hard-working teacher with 10 years of experience teaching in science education. I have taught high level Biology, including honors and IB biology, and have taught physiology, and IB sports exercise and health science.
I am extremely passionate about teaching, learning and supporting my learners. I love the challenge of finding new ways to help my students learn and understand. I excel because I love what I do.
