I have taught at Hampton Cove since 2011. I currently teach the Project Lead the Way career elective courses (Design and Modeling, Automation and Robotics, Computer Science for Innovators/Makers, App Creators, Flight/Space, and Medical Detectives.

I also sponsor the STEM competition club, encompassing FTC Robotics, Future City, Greenpower Racing, Science Olympiad and Technology Student Association. I am a founding sponsor for 7th/8th grade GSA and 6th grade Kindness Project.

Outside school, I enjoy reading, hiking, bicycling and my rescued terrier, Buddy.
BA, College of William and Mary, 1993
Class B, General Science, Middle Grades 4-8 (Including Career and Technical)
Career and Technical Courses
Before coming to Hampton Cove, I taught a year in Washington DC and several years at camps and enrichment programs, including 13 years at US Space Camp.

Here at Hampton Cove Middle, I taught Physical Science until Huntsville City Schools adopted the Project Lead the Way curriculum for applied science and engineering; then I jumped at the chance for more lab time. I am certified for 9 of the 10 PLTW Gateway units for middle school.

I have proudly served on curriculum and planning committees in Huntsville City Schools for Science Curriculum Pacing, Greenpower Curriculum Development and Educator Effectiveness.
