I have had the pleasure of working in a 1:1 classroom for four years now. I am the Science Olympiad coach for a K-2 school. We have had multiple 1st place wins in events within the District competing with 3-5 teams. I was recently named STEM Teacher of the Year for my school. It is my passion to learn by doing and help my students make new discoveries through using their imaginations.

I am an avid learner and addicted to attending workshops. I recently attended CESTEM, SCIRen, Literacy in Math and Science Olympiad Coaches training course. I have two children who enjoy learning about science. It is my hope that by introducing students at an early age to STEM/STEAM they will discover just how fun science really is!
