7th/8th Grade Science
Background & Philosophy
This is my 11th year in education and my first year here at Jefferson. Prior to teaching, I was a zookeeper at Brookfield Zoo in Chicago. I am passionate about science and helping students develop a curiosity and commitment to the natural world around them. I believe that all students have the ability to learn, grow, and succeed.
