This is my 14th year at Elizabeth High School. I have a passion for teaching science, especially the math based sciences, and a dedication to preparing students for the rigors of STEM college and career paths. Engineering and science degrees are highly competitive. I want to give my students the skills to transition smoothly and successfully into university level math and science.
I'm married to Allen, an electrical engineer with Broadcom. We have one kiddo, Lex, who starts kindergarten this year and loves watching plane crash videos on youtube and recreating plane crashes with his legos. We think he will be an FAA investigator one day. We have 2 dogs, Hooch (10 lb shaky angry chihuahua-miniature pinscher) and Abbey (emotionally needy standard poodle). I enjoy reading, jigsaw puzzles, climbing 14ers (I've climbed 32 so far), camping, hiking, and backpacking.
