This is my 11th year teaching at Houck. I have a Master's degree in Science Education. I have two daughters and love to go adventuring and exploring - camping, kayaking, hiking, rock climbing, geocaching. I also train in Ninjutsu (the art of the ninja) and love dancing (currently I'm taking ballroom lessons and learning waltz).
Last year I got to go on a science research boat up into the Arctic Ocean for a month with OSU scientists - we saw polar bears and walruses while we took water and sediment (mud from the ocean floor) samples to study how the ecosystem is changing due to climate change.
