Welcome and Hello to Everyone!
I want to share with you my passion for the sciences. Many of the life skills needed for success in high school and beyond are learned through observations and solving problems. I know the benefit of learning these skills applies to real world jobs where in my previous career, I hired and trained employees for a medical manufacturing where I was a quality control manager. As a life long learner I bring a blend of private and public experiences into my classroom.
My journey towards becoming a teacher began in Nebraska where I was born, raised, and went to college. In moving to Texas, I began my career in the private sector, married, and raised two children before coming to California where I am today. I have a daughter in Medical school, three rescue puppies, four adopted cats, and three feral kittens, or in other words a menagerie of excitement.
I enjoy teaching science at California Military Institute (CMI) and have done so for 13 years of my 16 years career in education. One reason I enjoy teaching here is the JROTC military structure that gives students solid foundational skills like Honor, Courage and Commitment that students carry with them after leaving this school
For 2020_2021 school year, we will be utilizing an Online learning platform. I am using the Google Classroom for course instructions, assignment posting, and homework to be turned in. You are also expected to sign up for REMIND.com, so be able to send a text message to 81010 on your phone. Codes are below for each class. This will provide automatic communication between students and the teacher.
Remind.com codes Chemistry @abfc2ah
Science 9 @4b4f46
Science 8 @b72c4a
Lastly, I am happy to begin each school year in August and prideful in June when our students graduate high school from California Military Institute.
Go Rough Riders!
