Degrees and Certifications:
I am fortunate to be starting my 16th year in the New Albany School System. I always wanted to be a teacher or a veterinarian, so I combined them and have been lucky enough to teach living organisms between the age of 14-18 for many years. I graduated from Bowling Green State University with a degree in Biological Education and received my Masters degree from The Ohio State University with an emphasis in Zoology and Botany. Prior to coming to New Albany, I taught eight years in the Westerville City Schools. In Westerville I taught Advanced Biology, Health, Biology and Field Studies. In between Westerville and New Albany I took five years to stay home and spend with my two girls.
I have a great love for the life sciences and have enjoyed teaching Biology, Honors Biology, AP Biology, Anatomy & Physiology, Marine-Insular Biology and STEM Africa Science at New Albany High School. I have taken many groups of students to Andros Island, Belize and Africa for science credit. I also serve as Co-Department Chair and House Dean for Science Hill.
Creating a classroom where students feel welcomed, appreciated, and can freely grow is a goal I have everyday. Teaching life skills through the lens of Biology is a constant goal.
