Educational Philosophy

 Learning is one of my favorite parts of life. Science offers some of the best opportunities to understand and enhance our experiences. In particular, biology helps us to understand our world in ways that help us to see how we all fit together on this wonderful planet.  I love science; in particular, I love biology.

My teaching experience has allowed me to be a keep learning in ways that are fun and dynamic. I hope this year at Clark High Schoolwill provide my students with similar experiences.  Together, we will work hard and learn something about each other and the living world around us.
