Hello Students and Parents! I will be teaching 7th Grade Science SC-07 and SC-19 during the 2017 academic year.  I am very excited ....GO SABER CATS!!

I earned my Bachelor's degree from Arizona State University in Conservation Biology and Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Phoenix.  I worked with the Game and Fish Department before earning my teaching degree.  While working for the Game and Fish, I lived at the very bottom of the Mogollon Rim and learned quite a bit about Arizona’s wildlife.  I have had the opportunity to participate in many things including raising trout and tracking coyote with radio collars!  

I have experience teaching biology, earth science, physics and chemistry.  I have taught both at the high school level and the junior high level. I really love teaching all sciences and can't say that I like one over the other. What I do love the most is that science is always developing and changing, keeping it very exciting!

I am looking forward to sharing a very exciting year in science with you!
