Experience

I have been teaching at CSAS since 2007.  Before that, I began my career at Tyner Academy.  I hold two endorsements, one for biology and the other for chemistry.  I have taught the following courses: Honors Biology I, Biology II, Anatomy and Phyisiology, Bioethics, Environmental Science, Chemistry, and 6th and 7th grade science.

In 2015-16, I will have four Honors Biology classes and two Anatomy and Physiology classes. 



Bio

Why are you at CSAS? CSAS has helped to shape the person that I am and it’s still doing it. But CSAS has also taught me to look beyond myself.  It has the most nurturing and diverse learning environment in town.  And it produces open-minded, creative, and compassionate life-long learners. I see proof of it everyday, inside and outside of our building.  I feel fortunate to be a part of this inspiring community and I embrace the Paideia philosophy. But the icing on the cake would have to be seminar.  Where else do I get to engage kids in exploring science, but also ideas in literature, phiolosophy, art, history, music, civics, ethics, culture, and so much more? 

Hobbies: Traveling, hiking, camping, biking, reading, photography, watching movies, attending live concerts

Favorite sports team: CSAS middle school soccer team (there really was only one time that I ever followed a professional sports team though, and it was the Sacramento Kings circa 2000...they were the underdogs, but played with such conviction).

Favorite book:  The Stranger, Jitterbug Perfume

Favorite subject when you were a student: English, Art

Favorite Superhero:  Batman, Professor Xavier (They're both more brains than brawn...)
