I started teaching Physics and Algebra at Standley Lake High School in the 2000-2001 school year. Several years later I completed my Masters of Science to add to my undergraduate science studies at CU Boulder and teacher licensure at UNC. Over the years, I have taught just about all levels of Physics and Chemistry from conceptual based courses to International Baccalaureate HL diploma courses. After eighteen rewarding years teaching at SLHS, I am excited to continue my educational journey to Boulder High School.
My dream has always been to be a science teacher, and a professional musician. Teaching high school science, and playing saxophone and guitar in HomeSlice (and for the Denver Broncos Stampede) have made for a surreal life to share with my family. I feel extremely fortunate, and push for my students to achieve the same successes in life.
Over the years I have helped sponsor Outdoor Club, Skate Club, Break-Dance Club, and Battle of The Bands. I am passionate about experiencing the joys Colorado offers and promote students to do the same.
