A little about your teacher:

I'm beginning my eleventh year teaching Science in Candia. I previously taught sixth, seventh and eighth grade Science, as well as Math and US History, at St. Thomas Aquinas in Derry for ten years. So....yes...I've been doing this for a long time! Every year, though, offers new and unique challenges that make being an educator an exciting adventure.

My husband and I have two sons and a Welsh Corgi named Bobo. My oldest son, a professional photographer, works in New York City and just got last married in June. My younger son has a degree in Natural Resources Conservation from the University of British Columbia in Vancouver and now lives near San Francisco. We're very proud of both of them but wish they lived a lot closer!

I believe that working with middle school students continues to be one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I am continually amazed by the creativity, perseverance, and growth I see on a daily basis, and I'm looking forward to a fantastic school year.
