I've been teaching Physical Science at Smithfield Middle School since 2009, and education is extremely important to me. I thoroughly enjoy sharing my passion for science with students. I strive for my classroom to be an engaging, collaborative, hands-on learning environment; a place where students gain confidence as they learn skills to think critically and solve real-world problems.
My husband an I are the proud parents of our daughter Lucy & son Henry. They were born in the Spring of 2012 & 2014, respectively.
