I graduated from the UKan Teach program at the University of Kansas in the Spring 2013. UKan Teach is a program to increase the number of science and math teachers in Kansas.
I am certified to teach 5th-8th General Science and 7-12th Earth & Space Science. I have a Bachelors degree in Geology from KU, Spring 2013 and a Liberal Arts BA from KU in Psychology & Philosophy, Spring 1993.
I am so glad to teach at Patton Junior High and and to be a Life Science Teacher! School year 2013-2014 was my first year teaching.
This is my "encore" career, after working many years for an agency that teaches life skills to adults with severe to profound intellectual disabilities. As a new school teacher, I bring a wealth of life experiences, perspective, enthusiasm and dedication to student learning.
I commute to Fort Leavenworth from Lawrence, KS. I have a 16 year old son named Eli, who attends 11th grade at Lawrence High School. He is smart and funny and thinks he should rule the world.
