I love helping people in anything I can. I love to write poetry . I want to become a nutritionist .
I am in 7th grade and LOVE math and reading. I could read all day if I had the time. I am 11 yrs old and I am nice, but shy, and I have many friends. I am willing to help them and anybody else in need of help.
I am a nice, shy, person now in 7th grade with lots of friends, but I only hang out with the ones I'm closest to. And I love books as you can tell by my profile picture! I also like playing soccer with my friends! I am a good artist who uses different styles of drawing to make my one unique style.
I graduated from Colorado State University with a B.S in Chemistry and Mathematics along with an education certification. My career began in Utah teaching junior high math and high school chemistry. I spent 22 years in the classroom as a science teacher in the Rosemount, Apple Valley, Eagan School District. I have taught physics, AP, honors, general and concept level Chemistry. Currently, I am a Professional Development Specialist working in the School of Education at Capella University. During the summer, I facilitate week long workshops for new and experienced chemistry teachers at Hamline University with Prof. Matt Morgan. As a team, we cover content as well as current best practices in the science classroom including inquiry and digital resources. I am also employed by the College Board as an AP Chemistry Consultant where I facilitate day-long to week-long workshops for classroom teachers. I believe one of the best ways to improve my professional practice is to network with teachers from all over the country and I enjoy the opportunities this provides.
