This is my 23rd year teaching middle school science. I taught 7th grade science for 10 years in Mt. Healthy and 8th grade science for 11 years at DMS, before arriving on team Lynx. I am also the Innovations & Design Thinking facilitator for the 7th grade.
I attended the University of Cincinnati for my undergraduate studies and Walden University for my master’s work. I hold a BA in English Literature, a MS in Elementary Education with a Specialty in Science.
I have been married for 20 years (to Dwight). I have 3 step children (Ian, sarah, & matt), 3 step grandchildren (kyra 13, devon 9, Macklin 4 months), 2 cats (Hunter & Jackson) and a turtle (Myrtle). My 9 year old grandson, Devon, lives with my husband and I.
I have a strange love for harry potter, the bee gees (Google them for a laugh), opera, and ice cream. I usually listen to pop or decades music from the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s. in my free time I like to read, play Nintendo games, volunteer in my community, and hang out with my friends and family. I love to eat, so I love to cook. i love learning new things, so I take a lot of classes and watch science and history tv shows.
I listened to bon jovi, whitesnake and deep purple. I sang in the choir, wrote for the school newspaper, and was in honor society. Science was always my favorite subject. I liked to draw and write and play Nintendo with my friends.
