Welcome to my webpage at Mesa Academy for Advanced Studies! I teach 6th grade science, Honors 7th grade science, and Honors 8th grade science. This will be my first year at Mesa Academy. Previously, I taught 7th grade science at Combs Middle School in San Tan Valley and 7-12 grade science at Superstition High School in Mesa.
As someone who holds three degrees, I am a firm believer in the power of education. I currently hold a Masters of Education in secondary science education from Arizona State University, a Bachelor of Science in Biology from the University of Houston, and an Associate of Science from Arapahoe Community College (Littleton, Colorado).
I enjoy travel and love bringing new knowledge into my classroom. In my class, students are expected to bring their passion and incorporate those into our class. Additionally, we focus on questioning the world around us to help us make sense of what we observe. My goal is for students to leave each class wanting to share their new-found knowledge.
