Welcome to Silver Hills Middle School and 7th grade science.  This year in science we will be exploring, observing and asking questions.  I am very passionate about teaching and the sciences and hopefully you will see that in my class.  

A few things about me are ---

I just joined Adam 12 district this year and I am very excited to get started.  The last 2 years I taught 7th grade science for Jeffco Public Schools in Colorado and worked as a substitute teacher for about 7 years before becoming a classroom teacher.  Before I found my passion for teaching, I worked as an Analytical Chemist for over 13 years in pharmaceutical/biopharmaceutical companies here in Colorado!  

I moved to Colorado in 1987 and I think this state is pretty AWESOME!!  I am married to a Colorado native and we have 2 boys who are 19 and 17.  My oldest son attends Adams State University in Alamosa Colorado and plays for their men's soccer team - GO Grizzlies!  My youngest also plays soccer for his high school team - GO Wildcats!   My family enjoys many outdoor activities like camping, hiking, skiing, fishing, biking and of course soccer.

I look forward to many explorations we will be doing this year and getting to know each one of you!
