I grew up in southern Wisconsin but finished my high school years in Green Bay. (That, of course, makes me an avid Packer fan!!) I received my bachelors of science in biology and chemistry from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point in 1985 and began my teaching career back home in Green Bay. After a five year stay I moved to Oregon where I taught for another five years before returning to my midwestern roots.
This time I landed in rival "Vikings territory" and had experiences in several educational settings including a small Christian high school, establishing a charter school and working with high risk students in an alternative school setting. I have found myself at Jefferson for this, my twelfth year, where I teach the physical sciences.
In my spare time (Do teachers really have spare time?? :) I enjoy spending time around the house gardening, reading, and taking my dog on early morning runs. I am very thankful for the teaching opportunity Jefferson has provided me and I realize the tremendous responsibility I have in molding young lives. Making a "difference" is the driving force behind my desire to continue in education
