I am incredibly excited to begin my second year teaching here at Highland Park High School. I have a BS in chemistry as well as a minors in mathematics and secondary educations from University of North Texas. Part of my undergraduate work in an organic/analytical chemistry laboratory resulted in contribution to a publication in the scientific journal Chemical Communications. I am a passionate environmentalist who sees the world through the eyes of a scientist. I seek to facilitate an in depth understanding of content through hands-on learning, providing real-world connections, and inquiry using high-level questioning. I believe in differentiating instruction and recognizing my students as unique individuals. I know that this year will be different in many ways however, my teaching philosophies and dedication to my students will remain the same.
