I am excited to be teaching Biology and AP Biology here at Northwest High School! While this is my 8th year here at Northwest, it is my 21st year of teaching Science. I am originally from Michigan and my husband and I have 3 boys: Michael - 26, Jonathan - 16, and Alexander - 16. I graduated from Lake Superior State University with my B.S. in Biology and a minor in Chemistry. I obtained my Masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Central Michigan University. During my free time I enjoy gardening, crafts, pinning, camping, kayaking and just hanging out with my twin boys, 3 dogs, friends and family! I look forward to sharing my love of Biology with your child and building a working relationship to bring them success in my classroom!

    • My desk and items on it are my property and mine alone.
  • Be nice
  • No Food or drink except clear water in a see through container. This includes gum!
  • Clean up after yourself and with your lab group members.
    • Trash goes in the trash can not the sinks, cupboards and drawers.

    • Raise your hand to be recognized to speak
    • Wait to speak when I or others are talking
  • If I should have a substitute teacher, she has the same authority that I have.
