A little about me:
I teach high school Earth science and 8th grade science at Hamburg Central Schools in western New York State. I am an ambitious and experienced educator. I have taught Earth science for nearly 14 years - all across western NY.
I chose to teach Earth science in hopes of producing new generations of citizens that understand and care for our planet. Earth is a complex system and all on Earth and beyond are connected. Upon leaving my class I hope my students understand how all actions have an impact on one another and how each may affect Earth and its inhabitants.
In addition to hugging trees, I enjoy playing soccer, running, canoeing, hiking, snowboarding, snowshoeing, and traveling. I read - mostly books by Barbara Kingsolver and other historical fiction. I have a new obsession with talk radio and podcasts. I love maps. I wish I had more time to paint and draw, as well as run more : ) I have a beautiful adopted shelter dog - she is a husky mix - named Weeko ("pretty girl" in Sioux). Although she's afraid of a soccer ball, we do tend to enjoy most of our hobbies together.
Please feel free to contact me by hovering over the "Home" button. The message will be sent to my school email and I will reply as soon as possible.
A little about this site:
This website was built entirely for my students. My wonderful little buds of Earth-lovers. Any videos or images posted on this site are not my own and are solely used for education purposes. I encourage my students and their parents to click around, watch the videos, read the captions, and click the links to enjoy more Earth science!
