Science Space

Welcome to the Science Lab!

I am so excited to join the Saint Matthew's staff as the new Science teacher! Although I am new to the school, I am not new to the teaching profession. I have 22 years of teaching experience with 16 of those years being in private education. I am a graduate of Wheaton College and have done graduate work at Ashland University. I have been a resident of Gahanna for 20 years and look forward to seeing many of you in the community. Science and math are my passions, and I hope to generate a love of those subjects with the students this year.
