Welcome to my class! I look forward to working with you this year.
I teach Biology and the Environment and 10th grade AVID.
We will be using the labtop every day to do things like access assignments, record data, share information and take assessments. Be sure to have your device charged and ready to go.
I will be using CANVAS this year for daily assignments. It can be accessed from JHS or Everett Public Schools Websites or the Quicklinks on the right side of this page.
My calendar listing assignments and test dates is also on Canvas
My gradebook is updated regularly. You can sign up to get email notifications from the gradebook, as well.
My schedule this year:
1st Period: AVID
2nd Period: Biology and the Environment
3rd Period: Prep
4th Period: Biology and the Environment
5th Period: Biology and the Environment
6th Period: Biology and the Environment
I also advise the Project Green Club - our school's environmental group which installed a native plants garden, coordinates the can/bottle recycling and plans to do more sustainability projects.
After graduating from Virginia Tech with a BS in Biology and getting my teaching certificate from University of Missouri-St. Louis, I took 18 years off to raise my four wonderful daughters. My husband and I travel, visit our granddaughter and attend various sporting and theater events. I have been working in Everett School District for 15 years and this is my 11th year at JHS. Go Wolves!
In 2014 I completed my Masters in Education from University of Washington-Bothell and my National Board Certification.
I love to work with parents and students. Use my email
