I teach 6th Grade Math, Earth Science, and PE. Who wouldn't want the job of talking math and science ALL DAY LONG?? I love Mondays and all the fresh new faces ready to learn.
When my girls started school I spent all of my time in their classrooms, school garden, and PTA; which naturally lead into substitute teaching. Now I have my own little hobbit hole with rocks everywhere and kids who are eager to learn about the world around them. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else.
I have 2 daughters. My oldest is currently studying for her MA is Emerging Media Studies at Boston University, plays soccer and field hockey and my younger works here at RHMS at Campbell Care and will start at West Valley in the Spring.
My favorite hobbies are rocks, minerals and more ROCKS! Wherever I go, I collect specimens and they are on display in my classroom for the students to handle. You can find me camping with my family in the Sierras or at the beach. We are a Lord of the Rings family at heart, and take our movie watching quite seriously - whether at home, walk-in, drive-in or summer beach nights. I love to read science magazines, but could be swayed by the right historical fiction or biography. I collect pins everywhere I go and I tend to channel Martha Stewart at party planning time!
The best way to reach me is my school email. I will message you back within 24 hours.
