GO BUCKS!! Many, Many, Many, Many years ago, I attended The Ohio State University and YES, I am not a fan of Michigan. In 1992, I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Science. I was a Respiratory Therapist with a focus on pediatric intensive care. I spent 10 years working as a therapist at The Cleveland Clinic's Pediatric Intensive Care Unit. I also instructed Lakeland Community College students during their intensive care rotations at the clinic. I received my Masters Degree in teaching and leadership from Colorado State University, but I am forever a Buckeye. I have been teaching at Webber for 16 years now and love it. I am all about helping students discover the fun in science and how making observations, asking questions, creating labs and collaborating with others makes them great scientists. To lower stress and anxiety, I have introduced a therapy dog and bunny into my classroom. Willow, my 3 year old Bernese Mountain dog mix and Nala, my bunny bring joy and extra love to students who need them.
What I love the most about teaching are the students.
Outside of school, I enjoy being active outside, either walking or hiking are some things I enjoy doing. The water is where I find a lot of joy and I am currently trying to teach my dog to stand up on a paddle board for more than 10 minutes. I also love art and creating new things.
In the last 16 years I have taught Biology, Math, 6th, 7th and 8th grade , and Pre-AP science.
