Schedule for 2018-2019
This year I am teaching AP Chemistry, which is a block 1st/2nd hour class. I also will be teaching three sections of Chemistry 215 that will be 4th, 5th, and 6th hour. Lunch depends upon a teachers 4th hour class - my 4th hour and I will have early lunch. 



My Teaching Background
I graduated from Michigan State University with a Bachelor of Science - my major and minor were Biology and Chemistry. I completed my intern year (student teaching) through MSU at Forest Hills Central High School teaching Biology and Chemistry. The next year I moved over to FHN as a long-term sub in Chemistry and Biology for first semester. My first official year as a teacher at Northern was 2004-2005 when I taught Introduction to Science, Environmental Science, and Chemistry in the Community (ChemCom). For the next three years I taught Biology and Chemistry at FHN. I also completed my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Teaching from Michigan State in that time period. I started teaching AP Chemistry and Chemistry 215 in the 2008-2009 school year and have been teaching them both ever since! This will be my 15th year full-time at FHN - Husky Pride! 

A Bit About Me...
   I am a HUGE Michigan State fan (GO GREEN!), I loved going to school there! My husband and I still try to make it to football, hockey, and basketball games when we can - and we still miss our student season tickets! My all time favorite sport is water polo, I played for East Kentwood High School and for Michigan State. I was an assistant coach for the Forest Hills Girls' Water Polo team during the 2004 and 2007 seasons. Water polo is a fantastic sport to watch and to play! Some of my other favorite things to do are play with my kids, read, go for walks, and watch movies.  I have two daughters, a sweet and silly five-year-old (Taylor) who starts Kindergarten this year and a bright and hilarious ten-year old (Madison) who will be starting 5th grade this year. I am sure you will see pictures of my girls around my room, and I guarantee you will hear stories about them!
