Upper School Science

After graduating from Missouri State University with my B.S. in Education in 1991 with certification areas of Elementary Education, Middle School Science and Social Studies.   I began as a classroom teacher in the public school system until 2000 when our family relocated to Sydney, Australia.  During this time, I had the opportunity to become a private Reading and Math tutor for year six students.  Upon returning to the States, I reentered the public school system teaching 7th and 8th grade science.  My graduate studies include both Elementary Education and Elementary Administration,  

In 2013, I was able to pursue an opportunity outside of education, which I thoroughly enjoyed, but found I missed the classroom.  So, in late 2019, I decided it was time to return to where I am happiest, and began the search for a teaching position that would align with my personal educational philosophy - I am very pleased to have found that here at Andrews Academy.  I believe intensely in creating a learning environment that allows students to become their most authentic selves while fostering an atmosphere of encouragement, forward thinking curiosity, problem solving & analysis and accountability.  

When not teaching, I spend as much time as possible with my grown daughters and my granddaughters.  We spend time upcycling furniture, quilting, and creating décor pieces for our homes.  I love the science of baking and can often be found attempting recipes far outside my skill set.
