Upper School Teacher: Science and Mathematics
BA in Math with a minor in Business at the University of Nevada, Reno
Covenant Academy is my home, and its people are my family. I'm a transplant from Nevada by way of Washington (state). I have been teaching for 28 years with 15 of those being in a classical Christian school.
I love science and the innumerable ways all of creation shouts of our amazing God. The anatomy of a starfish, the chemical reactions in the lab, the properties of electricity, and the mysteries throughout science are just a few of my favorite things. I believe the best way to get a grasp of the world around us is to explore and experiment. I'm also a math geek who thinks it's as much fun as a ride on a zip line (which I'm known to adore.) All of my students are strongly encouraged to come in and get some help any and every time they are struggling with a concept. My addiction is watching a face brighten as the connection is made and understanding occurs (the light bulb moment).
I have two kids which have now become four as they both have married and I love holding babies (no grandkids yet). Other hobbies include hiking, traveling, technology (even attending math and calculator conferences!), reading, music, dance, and horses. Really, I just love learning and people!
