Hello!  Welcome to 8th Grade Integrated Sciences at Prairie Heights! 


I am currently in my 14th year of teaching science and proud to be a PHMS Hawk for the last seven!  I am from Wisconsin where I received my Secondary Education License and Bachelor of Science in Resource Management and Biology.  That also makes me a cheese head and fan of the Green Bay Packers!  I am married and have two children ages 17 and 15.  I love the outdoors and spend my free time camping, fishing, hiking, and exploring.  I also love to travel with my family!  My most recent adventures brought me to Alaska where I enjoyed glaciers and the fjords of the Kenai Peninsula, and the Bahamas where I caught my first bonefish on a fly rod! 


I love teaching 8th grade science and the curiosity kids have about space and physics!  Please feel free to contact me with any questions!  I would love to chat with you about your student!
