I have been teaching for thirteen years, mostly teaching science at the high school level. I have also taught at the elementary and middle school levels. I am passionate about helping students learn and becoming well-rounded and successful human beings. I want my students to figure out what they are passionate about and what they will do in their future. My students inspire me to take new teaching risks each year to reach all of them and to help them learn. During my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, and playing video games.
