I would like to let you know a little about myself. I grew up in a small town in southern Oklahoma. My husband and I wanted that small town feel for our children, James and Matthew. This was our impetus for moving to Nevada where we have lived for 16 years. I have been teaching at one place or another for most of my life. Prior to teaching in Texas, I was an adjunct professor for 4 years at Southeastern Oklahoma State University. There, I taught classes in astronomy, physics, and general science. When we moved to Texas, I began teaching in Dallas ISD. I have been teaching here at Community for 12 years. The subjects I have taught include astronomy, anatomy, environmental science, physics, forensics, chemistry, and robotics. Currently at CHS, I am teaching Physics, preAP Physics, AP Environmental Science, Forensics, and Astronomy.
I have a love for science and the desire to pass that love on to others, I want my students to see the wonder of the universe and understand the special place we hold in it. I want them to be able to distinquish science from pseudoscience so that they will become better informed stewards of our world.
