This is my first year at New West, and I am very excited to be here. I grew up in southwest Missouri and attended college at Missouri State University. There, I earned a bachelor of science in Biology with a minor in Anthropology. I moved to California recently where I am currently finishing a master of arts in Teaching. I have a daughter who is a year and a half, and together we love to travel, read, and be outdoors.
I am very passionate about science and discovery, and bring this enthusiasm to my classroom. I want my students to get excited to learn all that science has to offer them. I look forward to working with such driven students who will create an environment full of curiosity.
