Background Information

For over 20 years, I have enjoyed teaching science in West Michigan, mainly at the middle school level. I have also taught at the elementary and high school level and am NCLB Highly Qualified. I have experience teaching biology, chemistry, physics, and earth science in classrooms as well as teaching math to gifted and talented students. One of my favorite events at RMSC is Science Olympiad as I used to be a coach! As a mother of three children, I have a passion for helping teachers be even more effective science educators for this next generation.
