I am a wife, mom, and high school science teacher in the Midwest. I currently teach Integrated Science, Honors Chemistry, and AP Chemistry at Highland High School in Highland, IL.
I received my B.S. in Biology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I earned my teaching certificate while taking graduate level chemistry classes and pursuing my M.S. Ed in Instructional Technology at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. I became National Board Certified in AYA Science in 2004, and completed recertification in 2013.
When not teaching, I enjoy gardening, cooking, and spending time with my husband and three kids.
