I am starting my 26th year of teaching science. I began my career teaching Middle School general science in the USA. The past 14 years I taught High School Chemistry in Virginia and South Florida. I have coached various girls athletic teams and I have experience as the Director of Athletics. I have been in Mataram since July 2019 and look forward to many new adventures. My daughter Tess is attending university and working in the USA.
I believe that everyone can learn. I think we all learn differently. I look forward to working and searching with my students to find out “what kind of learner they are.” I help them find strategies that improve their study skills. I work hard to make success inevitable. I enjoy the challenge of making every lesson relevant and exciting. I strive to breathe life into the classroom using Hand-On activities and infusing technology as often as possible. I enjoy training, mentoring and collaborating with new teachers.
