Background Information / Interests

Coming from a teaching background in middle school science and high school mathematics, I joined the RMSC staff in the fall of 1993.  I particularly enjoy the work that I have been able to do in teacher professional development, especially in the areas of teacher leadership and inquiry-based teaching and learning.  Areas of interest to me professionally, that I hope to pursue in the future, are the use of models (modeling) in the science classroom and the integration of science and mathematics with other disciplines.
