This is my 14th year of teaching, and the 11th year in distance learning. It is gratifying to know I reach students all over the state.
I enjoy presenting new information and then guiding the students to a better understanding through projects, research, and collaboration. I am now a teacher leader and try to guide my teachers to help their students reach beyond what they think they can accomplish.

I love relaxing by the pool, reading, and watching true crime stories. I believe we are given very few true friends in life and we need to treat them as the gems they are.
