I am very pleased to be returning to this great school for the fourth year. With experience in both the public and private sectors, I have taught Science in grades 5 - 10, but the middle school grades are my favorite. I hold a Colorado Professional License in Science Education (7-12) and am Highly Qualified in Elementary Education. I love Science and am an avid amateur geologist. Winning the Mikkelson Mathematics and Science Teachers Grant and Byrnes Foundation Grant allowed me to study the Yellowstone Volcano over the span of two summers with volcanologists from the USGS. This year I have been able to observe the volcano on the island of Hawaii and the glaciers of Alaska. Both experiences were amazing! Elizabeth has been my home for 19 years, with my children having graduated from Elizabeth High School. It’s good to be teaching in my community, especially at Legacy Academy!
