I love working here at Higley. My educational philosophy is that thanks to the plethora of technology students have access to, many of them have begun to develop an "I want it now" mindset. Critical thinking is often overlooked when you have the power of Google at your fingertips. I firmly believe that all students have the ability to participate in inquiry-based learning and develop a higher level of thinking.
Over many years a stigma has been placed on science subjects stating they are too difficult. I aim to show students that science simply shows us a new way of looking at our world and that everyone has the potential to be a scientist.
In addition to teaching chemistry, I am also the sponsor of our Key Club. I have a passion for community service and doing as much as I can to make the world a better place. I truly believe that each individual person can have a huge impact on the world, which is summarized by my favorite quote from my favorite movie: "...[N]o matter what kind of person you are, I implore you: Try. Try to make the world a better place. Look inside yourself and recognize that change starts with you." -Judy Hops,
