I am embarking on my fourteenth year of my journey as a teacher and the tenth year of my Wydown expedition. Prior to coming to Wydown, I spent four years teaching Human Anatomy & Physiology, Chemistry and Earth Science at University City High School. My switch to middle school and the School District of Clayton has been an AMAZING experience!
I am looking forward to challenging my 7th graders to be curious and think scientifically about everything that happens around them. During this year, I hope to get my students comfortable with ambiguity, as ambiguity and not having a "right" answer is an inevitable part of the science experience.
My motto is, "Science is a daily experience, not a class you take!" I strongly believe that you should experience science and not just have a "sit and get" experience in class. On the whiteboard in the back of my classroom, you will see "SCIENCE IS FUN!" because I believe that the best learning takes place when students have a positive disposition.
I have three children; a junior in college (Khaylie), a 10th grader (Khaydn), and a Kindergarten student (Zephyr).
