I am a Minnesota native, but went to college at Iowa State University. There I received a Bachelors of Science in Biology. During my undergraduate experience I had a lot of fun working in education at a public garden, as well as tutoring my fellow students. Once I finished my undergraduate degree I continued at Iowa State to get a Masters in the Art of Teaching in secondary science education, and now I'm here!
I am a big ecology nut and love herpetology (reptiles) and entomology (insects) as well as hiking and enjoying the outdoors. I look forward to enjoying, exploring and discovering the world of science with our students this year, and to make this year great!
