TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've been teaching science in Texas for over 20 years. My experience ranges from 6th grade all the way through high school. I currently teach 8th grade science in Wylie, Texas.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Through experimentation, I strive to show students how to truly use the Scientific Method through falsifying and confirming hypotheses. I enjoy putting students in new situations where they need to apply their science knowledge.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I've received numerous awards including the American Geosciences Institute Edward C. Roy Award for Excellence in Earth Science Teaching (2017), Texas Earth Science Teachers Assocation Teacher of the Year (2014), the Texas Medical Association Butler Award for Excellence in Science Teaching (2013), and the Science Teachers Association of Texas Middle School Science Teacher of Year (2009).

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I received my Bachelor of Science in Education from the University of Michigan in 1995. I earned my Masters of Education in Teacher Leadership from Grand Canyon University in 2015.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Since 1998, I've worked with Education and Public Outreach through The University of Texas at Austin Astronomy Department and their involvement with NASA's Stratospheric Observatory For Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA). I had the opportunity to fly as part of the Echelon Cross Echelle Spectrometer (EXES) team aboard SOFIA in 2015.
