I have been a Special Education teacher at Ellsworth High School since 2008. Before working in Special Education, I was a Science teacher in Texas. I have brought my science background to EHS and have taught ISP Chemistry and Biology for students who require specialized instruction at a pace that meets their individual needs. My focus is to provide a safe learning environment where students feel free to take educational risks.
To My Students:
I understand that science can sometimes seem "scary" or intimidating. It is my goal to help you break through that and become comfortable and engaged in scientific inquiry, discussions, and projects. I strive to create a cooperative community in the classroom and model for students the importance of mutual respect and cooperation among all community members.
