Hello Students and Families!

I'm so happy to be a Viking, teaching science here at Oakmont High School.  I started teaching Integrated Science in January of 2007, and in the past 14 years I have taught Biology, Earth Science, Forensic Science, and AP Psychology.  This year I am teaching IB Biology and NGSS Biology.  I love science, and the scientific way of viewing the world - curiosity and wonder. I approach science teaching with a "sense-making" philosophy.  Yes, I want my students to know all the terms and concepts, but more importantly, I want them to understand and make sense of the content!  

When I'm not teaching, I love exploring new National Parks with my husdband and two children.  It's a personal goal to see all the National Parks over my lifetime.  I also enjoy running.  I'm not always fast, but I love training and the feeling of crossing finish lines.
