Length of Service in Education:
I have been teaching at Clague since 2000.
Strengths I bring to Clague:
I am always learning new techniques to better my students' learning and showing them how to love science. I am very passionate of the science curriculum and love to integrate technology with learning. I want students to see how important science is and how it is related to their every day life. I also want students to have fun, ask questions and getting them to expand on their thinking beyond what they already know.
I grew up in Ann Arbor and went through the Ann Arbor Public Schools.
I was awarded the "Math/Science Teacher of the Year Award for Middle/High School" by the University of Michigan Chapter of Sigma Xi, Scientific Research Socieity in 2015.
I was also slected as a delegate to go to Singapore in 2014, where I learned many innovative ideas to implement in my classroom to make it what it is today.
Hobbies and Interests:
I like to draw game puzzle mazes and make jewelry from beads and create origami. I also love to read and watch movies. I enjoy going to our cottage up North and playing with my dog, Maya. I also love to travel and go hiking.
