I want to live in a world with innovative schools, books that come
bundled with chocolate, and a device that will take all of my lesson
ideas instantly from my brain to my plan book. I am excited about my
position at Franklin Discovery Academy because one of those wants is
about to be fulfilled.
As an educator with more than 10 years of experience, I have
effectively incorporated technology into my science curriculum. I
believe children are naturally born scientists, and encourage questions
and inquiry. I have found that children always have questions…lots and
lots of questions. Therefore, I love everything about teaching science.
I have successfully funded several grants and projects that have
allowed me to bring laptops, tablets, and other fun gadgets into my
classrooms for students to explore. I earned my Master of Arts in
Science Education degree from Western Governors University in 2011. In
2005, I earned her Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education degree
from Northern Illinois University.
When I'm not teaching, and planning what to teach next, I'm am
kept busy by my son and daughter, ages six and nine, respectively.
Together we cook (aka make delicious messes), travel to new places
(whenever possible), and spend time exploring books and nature.
