Biography

This is my second year at New West, and I am very excited to be here.  I grew up in southwest Missouri and attended college at Missouri State University.  There, I earned a bachelor of science in Biology with a minor in Anthropology.  I moved to California recently where I am currently finishing a master of arts in Teaching.  I have a daughter who is two years old, and together we love to travel, read, and be outdoors. 

 

I am very passionate about science and discovery, and bring this enthusiasm to my classroom.  The daily goal is to create an environment of innovation and learning that transports the students from a traditional, structured classroom to one full of active science.  I want my students to get excited to learn all that science has to offer them and to truly understand that is interdisciplinary and vast; textbooks simply outline the basics that scientists use every day around the globe in a variety of ways.  I look forward to working with such driven students who will create an environment full of curiosity.
