"It is my goal to use Project/Process Based Learning (PBL), STEM Education (Science, Technology, Math & Engineering), and the Scientific Process to prepare SHECHS students for college level biology and/or careers requiring problem solving skills."  -Ms. Menard

This is me and my son...a future scientist!

I am originally from Michigan, moved to Atlanta, GA for graduate school, and currently teach at SHECHS in Raeford, NC. I like all things science and football (Go Michigan State!) and I love my family both at home and at school. I am proud to be a part of the new, innovative way of teaching and hope to use it to excite my students and prepare them for their futures-whatever that may be! I believe that ALL students will be successful, each in their own way.
