    I am a graduate of Geneva College where I earned a double major in both biology and chemistry.  After working in the education department with delinquent teens in a Christian boy's home called Teen Challenge, I realized a strong desire to combine my passion for working with teenagers and my knowledge of science as a high school teacher.  I continued my education at the University of Pittsburgh where I earned a Masters of Art in Teaching.  I worked in the McKeesport Area School District from 2001 to 2003. I currently work at the high school in the Upper St. Clair School District where I teach biology and chemistry courses.

    Teaching Philosophy

    I believe students learn best when they are both challenged and supported.  I strive to do both on a daily basis with groups of students and individually.
