    Hello and welcome to my science classes. I am honored to be teaching such a fine
    group of young adults and I hope to inspire you to enjoy science!  I have a great love
    of science and have been pursuing science since I can remember.  I have a  B.S. in
    Microbiology from Purdue University and have worked for many years in immunology
    and virology research which led to the development of products to detect human infectious
    diseases , drugs of abuse, and plant pathogens.  After moving to California almost 12 years
    ago I went back to school and received my Multiple Subject teaching credential, and
    Single Subject teaching credentials in Biology and Chemistry.  This will be my 10th year of
    teaching science!!
      
      I hope to share my love of inquiry and experimentation with you.  I want you to know I will do my
    very best to lead you in inquiry,provide you with in-depth instruction, resources, and various avenues of learning,
    so you will be able to achieve confidence and success as a student scientist.  I have high expectations
    of my students and believe the higher the expectations you set for yourself, the higher the learning
    experience you will gain.  I offer a rigorous educational experience while supporting all students to
    achieve their own personal success.
