Science Teacher

I am originally from New England, but have been glad to call Kansas home for more than 20 years.   I am very excited to be part of the Tonganoxie family as your Chemistry teacher at the High School.

I earned my Bachelor of Science in Chemistry from the University of Massachusetts at Boston, and continued my science education in Physical Chemistry at the Graduate School of Liberal Arts and Sciences at the University of Kansas.   I also hold secondary teaching certifications in Physics and Principles of Engineering.  I completed my teacher training program at Washburn University and have been teaching since 2004.

Science is around us everywhere, everyday.  My job as a science teacher is to help everyone see the applications and connections of science in our daily lives.  Chemistry is challenging, but it can also be fun and exciting.  

I am looking forward to a great school year filled with investigations and learning.

My Schedule:
Hour 1:  Chemistry
Hour 2:  Plan
Hour 3:  Chemistry
Hour 4:  Honors Chem II
Hour 5:  Plan
