ABOUT ME:

Welcome to 5th Grade Science! This will be my 9th year teaching at Lyle Creek Elementary School and my 8th year teaching 5th grade science. I am married to my college sweetheart, Brian. We have two boys ages 15 and 17. We also have a Golden Retriever named Wrigley and a bearded dragon named Godzilla. I grew up in California, Virginia, and Illinois. I attended Iowa State University and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education with an area of specialization in Spanish.

In my spare time, I enjoy reading, traveling, hiking, and gardening. This summer, I traveled to the Duke Marine Lab in Beaufort, NC to learn about marine debris (plastic in our oceans) and how to minimize our impact on the environment. I also attended the Smithsonian Science Education Teacher Academy in Washington, D.C. to learn about energy. I got to go behind the scences at the Smithsonian museums and meet the scientists who curate the exibits. It was the trip of a lifetime! In August, I attended Google Certification training and hiked to waterfalls in North Carolina. 

I love teaching science, and I hope you will enjoy our time together in 5th grade. I am passionate about reaching the potential and hidden talents in every student! Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.
