I am starting my 13th year of teaching...middle school, no less. I have spent the majority of my teaching career teaching the "special" populations: special education and gifted students with few years teaching "non-special" kids in between.
I am definitely a technology junkie. Every announcement by Google or Apple excites me! I love getting students to the point where they are primarily responsible for their own learning and success.
2008 Siemens Science teacher Award 2009 Teacher of the Year (Pointe South Middle School)
My educational background is as diverse as my students!I have a degree in Healthcare Management and Nursing as well as Biology. My Master's degree is in Science and Math Education and I have Specialist's degree in Teacher Leadership and Science Education.
I love reading and science and teaching middle school students only adds to my joy. I wanted to be a doctor but what other career has a greater impact than teaching? In my spare time, you will find me watching the Food Network Channel, trying to create culinary masterpieces.
