I hail from Louisville, Kentucky, but it’s been a long time since I’ve lived there. I’ve led an interesting life that has taken me from studying ancient meteorites in New Mexico, to working as a geologist in the deepest depths of a sweltering underground gold mine in Nevada, to teaching English and climbing mountains in Japan. I taught in New York City for two years and saw how starkly segregated the school system is there and I have been inspired to bring people from different backgrounds and cultures together. I’ve been in Tulsa for the last year and I really love the communities here. I’m learning more about anti-racism in science and how I can incorporate that into my teaching at TSAS.

I teach because I find it very rewarding ,and it gives me a sense of purpose. The opportunity to equip kids with tools to navigate the world, their emotions, and society is what helps me get up in the morning. I love seeing that I am making a difference in future generations and helping students understand that all problems have some kind of solution, even if it’s not the solution you sought out initially.

I am a lover of science, avid reader, gardener, and swimmer. I have taught every age group in some capacity from preschool to college level courses in multiple different cities. I adore animals, and live here in Tulsa with my husband, 3 dogs, 2 cats, and 5 chickens.

I teach science because I believe that my students have the ability to positively impact the future of this country, but for that to be true they must have a foundational knowledge of how the world around them works and to be critical thinkers who can make their own decisions.

I keep up with all things nerdy and love to talk about them. I can probably talk your ear off about most video games, movies, comics, or TV shows. When I’m not being a super dork, I’m 2 seconds away from going on some random adventure. I enjoy spontaneous travel and if it’s a road trip, you can best believe my cat is in the car with me.

I teach because I enjoy watching my students learn and learning with them. Each day in the classroom is a learning experience for everyone and it is beautiful to see what we can learn.
