B.S. Biology Central Michigan UniversityM.A. Secondary Education Marygrove College
I graduated from Central Michigan University with a B.S. in Biology and Secondary Education. I hold an M.A. in Education as well. I have been working in West Bloomfield since 1997 and have taught Biology 1, Human Biology, AP Biology and Medical Mentorship in my time here. I have been the science department chair since 2000. I have coached baseball and golf during my career at West Bloomfield.
I am an advocate for Inquiry Science and believe that students are learning the most when they are given the opportunity to experiment and experience the challenges science offers. Rote knowledge will always have a value but without application it is lost as quickly as it is obtained.
I became a teacher in 5th grade when I had a wonderful teacher myself. I know the impact a teacher can have on a student and this is why I choose to teach. I look forward to another great year in West Bloomfield.
All class materials and assignments are managed on the Google Classroom platform. Students will be given access within the first few days of school.
