Tell me about your favorite experience while teaching…

“I wouldn’t say I have a favorite moment, but, honestly, when I make corny jokes and my students laugh, because I do like to be corny.”

Besides your love for Chemistry, why do you love teaching such a rigorous course?

“Because it is just such a thrill to me to take something hard and make it understandable to people. I mean, I just love when people go ‘ohhh now I get it’ and they have that epiphany. That is very very fun, but, mostly, I just love teaching high school kids.”

What have you taught?

Everything. I have taught 7th grade English, 8th grade English, Physical Science, Biology, Physics, Chemistry, AP Chemistry, 4th grade, GT, and Earth Science.

What brought you to durango?

My husband’s job.

Where did you go to college?

Texas A&M

What is your favorite thing to do besides  teaching?

I love to walk my dog, run before my foot got hurt, garden, hangout with my husband and go to movies.
