As I enter my 22nd  year teaching - 16 of which has been at Woods- I continue to be excited to work with students!  I am a high school science teacher (teaching Environmental Science), a Junior advisor and I will teaching grade 6 science as well..  As a teacher of all juniors and an advisor, I am pleased to continue the Tremont trip (to the Smokey Mountains) which will be held Novembe 28 - December 1.   

My goal for all my classes is for students to become more aware of issues and for them to ask questions and seek answers (essentially to T-H-I-N-K!). 

I have a Bachelor's degree in Biological Science from Manhattan College in Riverdale, NY.  I  hold a Masters of Arts in Science Education from New York University and a Masters in Education in School Counseling from North Carolina State University.  In January 2016, I completed a 200+ hours program and became a NC Certified Environmental Educator.  I am an alumni of a UNC-Chapel Hill Fellowship program entitled C.L.I.M.A.T.E and a UNC Energy Fellow.

I have teaching certificates in New York State, New York City and North Carolina for Science grades 6-12.  In addition, I am a Licensed School Counselor for K-12 in North Carolina.  

The most appealing aspect of Woods for me is the relationships that are formed between the staff and students.  I can remember that ONE teacher in my HS career who was there for me, encouraged me and picked me up when I fell down.  Each day I teach, I aspire to be that ONE teacher for a student!  At Woods, these relationships are encouraged, fostered and are the cornerstone of our community.  It is the "Woods Way"!

Finally, please note that I use Google Classroom for all my classes, all handouts and PowerPoints are loaded onto these pages weekly.  Additionally, homework is submitted via the Google Classroom.(high school only) I have added the course syllabi, grading policy and course outline for BOTH courses here, please refer to these documents as references.
