Go Wahoos!  I graduated with an Environmental Science degree from the
University of Virginia in 2000.  I started my work career in a very exciting
area.  I worked for Earth Tech helping to clean up the world.  I got to
explore numerous SuperFund sites assisting the EPA.  This even included the
WTC and Anthrax clean-up of DC.  In 2002 I ventured to the even more exciting
field of education.  I taught in Northern Virginia for two years.  Then
I made my teaching home Trexler Middle School where I taught for five years.  I'm excited to be teaching my seventh year at Southwest High and look forward to sparking a love of
science in my students everyday.

Mission For The Class:

We will explore and develop a basic understanding of the scientific world and use this
information to relate to our everyday life and our future successes.
