About Me

This is my 4th year teaching. I am lucky enough to be the only 7th and 8th grade science teacher at my school. This means that I get to teach the same group of students for two years and watch them mature as they prepare for high school. I am happy to be a part of a county that has so much to offer. The San Joaquin County Office of Education has allowed me to get my middle schoolers more interested in science through Dinner with a Scientist and Science Olympiad.
I am part of a team at my district in charge of introducing and implementing the NGSS. At my site, I am one of two teachers who have really decided to give Google a try. I am excited to say that our school will be getting more Chrome books soon and that will allow me to use them more than 2 days per month.
Last summer I joined the Great Valley Writing Project for a summer institute. This has given me the opportunity to listen to amazing teachers and implement new things in my room. Also through GVWP, I have become more forthcoming with what I have to share with others.
