Classes: Survey of Algebra, Calculus, JH Earth Science, Environmental Science

This is my 9th year teaching at Lumen Christi High School. I was born and raised outside of Annapolis, MD. I received a B.S. in Biology from the University of Vermont in 2004 and an M.A. in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 2007. Since receiving my masters, I have taught at a small private school in Boulder, CO before relocating to Alaska in 2010.  This year at Lumen I am teaching calculus, survey of algebra, junior high science and environmental science as well as serving as the advisor to the National Honor Society.

My primary goal as a teacher is to strive to meet each student at their level and create a dynamic classroom that engages all style of learners with as many applications to the real world as possible.

In addition to teaching, I spend my summers working as a logistics coordinator for a National Science Foundation funded project that installs an array of seismic monitoring stations across the state of Alaska.

In my spare time, I enjoy skiing, hiking and camping with my husband and two dogs, Darwin and Leo.
