I am a Chemistry teacher at Maple Grove Senior High in Maple Grove, MN. I love working with students and believe that challenging students at their ability level is important to get them ready for post high school success. An appropriate level of challenge helps you learn time management and study skills! I am a visual learner, but I try to remember that not everyone can be successful by just reading information. I love science, and believe that science and technology are important fields for all students to study. My hobbies involve reading and gardening, along with camping and enjoying the outdoors. One of my favorite places to camp is the North Shore of Lake Superior. My daughter is my camping companion most of the time, and our goal is to camp and hike in every state. We have been to many, but still have quite a lot to go!
