I am thrilled to journey through the biological sciences with you all here at Higley High! I have been teaching middle and high school science in the Higley district for seven years, and I also call our community home. Prior to working in Higley, I taught middle school science in the Florence district. Teaching is a second career for me, but one that I feel I was destined to pursue. When I'm not in my classroom, I spend my time with my husband, 4 year old son and 6 year old daughter enjoying the outdoors, taking frequent camping trips, attempting home improvement projects, and enjoying life in beautiful Gilbert. Our family is also welcoming two Siamese kittens into our home the last week in July (feel free to send me kitten tips - we are newbies!) I am passionate about teaching and helping students understand their potential as scientists. In our class, students will ask questions, ponder curious observations, make discoveries, and develop a solid understanding of life and its fascinating processes.
Let's get discovering!
