EHS Science Mission Statement: Provide an active learning environment which enables students to think, solve problems, and communicate like a scientist.

                                                                                   About Me:

This will be my 10th year teaching science in Jefferson County.  I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Zoology from Colorado State University and my Masters Degree in Secondary Science from the University of Colorado Denver.  Before entering the teaching profession I worked for 12 years at the Denver Zoo as a Zookeeper where I was passionate about the conservation and preservation of animals and our environment. Students love hearing about my wild experiences working with exotic animals. Teaching science at the secondary level gives me yet another opportunity to educate our youth about our beautiful planet while simultaneously inspiring them to become informed citizens and knowledgeable consumers.   

I've lived in Evergreen for the past 13 years with my husband and son and we are so grateful to be a part of this community.  We love spending time with our golden retriever, playing and watching baseball, hiking, camping and working on our home and in our yard.  

 I've worked in a variety of schools (middle school to high school) and with a diversity of students throughout my teaching career.  I feel that being a parent makes me a more thoughtful teacher and has prepared me for almost any  situation in the classroom. 
 I want every student to enjoy their time learning in our science class.   

Within every educator is a core belief about what good teaching and learning should look like.  This belief grounds them within their 
profession and often paints a picture of what learners 
can expect within their classroom. 

If you would like to know more about my core beliefs about good teaching and learning please view my instructional portfolio through the link below.  It will give you an overview of what learning looks like in my classroom.
