A little about me...
I am currently in my 19th year in District 56 as a science teacher, 24th year of teaching overall. I teach both 7th and 8th grade science. My goal is to encourage all students to develop an appreciation of science in the two years that I have them in my class. My aim in my science classes is to expose the students to a variety of topics, with a focus on hands-on lab work as much as possible. I also implement many reading/writing strategies in my classroom, to keep aligned with the district reading goals.
I have been married for 17 years to my husband, Jeff, who is a territory manager for Cintas. We have one son, Lukas, who is currently in 8th grade at St. Patrick School in Wadsworth. In my free time, I enjoy cooking, reading books by authors such as Stephen King and Dean Koontz, catching up with series on Netflix, 5D diamond painting, Legos, and playing games on my iPad.
