Degrees and Certifications:
Thanks for viewing my page! This is my ninth year teaching science at Hamilton Middle School. Prior to this, I taught for three years as the 5th-8th grade Math, Science, Computer, Art, and Woodshop teacher in Dixon, MT (Flathead Reservation). I am very thankful to be part of the Hamilton District and look forward to working hard with students again this year.
I am originally from outside of Buffalo, NY. I received my undergraduate degree in Elementary Education from Buffalo State College and moved to Evaro, MT shortly after. While teaching in Dixon, I was lucky to be part of the Big Sky Science Partnership (BSSP) for three years. This program allowed me to earn my Masters of Science in Science Education through MSU in 2010. This year, I will continue to implement a set of culturally competent, standards-based, curriculum-aligned earth science trunks from my fellowship opportunity from the National Science Foundation (http://nsfnoyce.org/).
My interests include spending time with family (especially my new daughter) and friends, hunting, trapping, gardening, canning, cooking, camping, and hiking.
