"Its a beautiful thing when your career and a passion come together" -unkown author

I love teaching science!! My students often say I do magic and I respond, "It's Science!" This is my 23rd year of teaching.  However this is my first year at Lewis and Clark Middle School.  I have taught High School Chemistry, Conceptual Physics, Earth Science, 9th grade Physical Science and 9th grade Honors Physical Science previously. The subjects I will be teaching this year are 8th grade Physical Science and 8th grade Gifted and Talented Physical Science.  We have an exciting year ahead. I am happy to have you in my class. You will find this class to be both interesting and challenging.  The topics of study will involved both Physics and Chemistry along with STEM Activities. 

 When I'm not teaching I spend time riding my Harley motorcycle with my husband.  I have a daughter who is 11 years old and a son who is 8 years old. As a family we enjoy spending time camping, fishing, hunting, swimming and much much more!
