About the Teacher
Hi! Welcome to seventh grade science! I look forward to
challenging students with hands on experiments and to exploring all
avenues that science has to offer. In 2009 I graduated from SUNY Oneonta with a B.S. in
Education and Biology along with a minor in Chemistry. In January 2014, I received a masters from
Western Connecticut State University in Instructional Technology. In past years I have taught
Living Environment at John Jay High School and science at Van Wyck
Junior High School. This will be my tenth exciting year with Wappingers Junior High School!
My hobbies include playing the drums, running, mountain biking and snowboarding. I am the
the coach for the Modified Volleyball Team and am also one of many chaperons for our school ski club,
Boston and Washington D.C. Trip. If you are interested in any of these, do not hesitate to ask!
I think it is important that students are aware of the many applications of
science in the world. A background in the biological sciences will:
-Give students the tools to be able to understand life's processes.
-Allow students to analyze and interpret the world around them.
-Expose students to different outlets in science.
-Provide students with the proper tools to make informed decisions as a
competent citizen and interact with others in a knowledgeable way.
