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.
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.
