Welcome to Burton Middle School! I have been teaching science at BMS since 2006. Prior to coming to BMS, I taught high school (and adult school) biology, environmental science, and algebra. I received my degree in Biology from UC Irvine, and teaching credential through Chapman University. Additionally I completed a Masters in Education in teaching from National University. I truly enjoy teaching, and am excited to share my love of the sciences with my students.
I want all of my students to be prepared for their lives ahead, and believe the knowledge and skills students obtain in my classroom are applicable to our everyday lives. Beyond the physical science the students learn, my classes require problem solving, collaboration, and personal responsibility. My goal is to develop independent life-long learners.
