I have taught science at Vanguard for 6 years and am excited to teach again here this year. I earned a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry and a minor in math from Missouri Western State University, and I earned a teaching certificate from the University of Wyoming while tutoring and teaching chemistry labs. At Vanguard, I have taught chemistry, culinary science, earth science, biology, middle school science fiction, Algebra I, and 6th grade and 7th grade Core Knowledge science. This year I am teaching chemistry, calculus, and 7th grade Saxon math; I also advise 7th grade.
I have sponsored Culinary Club, Student Senate, and Anime Club in past years. I have chaperoned the 6th grade outdoor lab trip, the Washington DC trip, and the summer Denver Pop Culture Con trip; I will also chaperone the high school Italy trip in 2022. Over the summer, I like presenting educational panels at the Denver Pop Culture Con, going to concerts, and playing video games. During the school year, I spend time with my cat, Scooter, and my sister while cooking, crafting, and watching TV.
