About Me

I have been teaching middle school science for over 30 years.  I have just begun my 35th year of teaching and loving every minute of my new classes and new students.  Having taught in Texas for 20 years, I moved to Colorado 15 years ago.  Teaching is all that I ever wanted to do in life even though I did change my plans about what I would teach.  Middle school students are fun and excited about learning science which makes my classroom very active.
