Lake Creek High School Lions
Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN


I'm thrilled to be starting my sixth year of teaching and my first year of teaching at Lake Creek High School. GO LIONS! This year I will be teaching Advanced Biology and Environmental Systems.


Let me give you a little background about myself. I grew up in The Woodlands and graduated from The Woodlands High School in 1999. I was most passionate about medicine and music in school, so I packed my bags for Nashville to attend Vanderbilt University. After earning my bachelors degree in biomedical engineering, I spent the next decade working in biomedical research and healthcare architectural planning. After the housing market crash, I found myself in a career transition wondering what to do next.  My search eventually led me back to Vanderbilt for my M.Ed. in Learning and Instruction. I received an offer to pilot AP Biology in a small private school in Savannah, GA after two years of teaching in TN. After my third year in GA, homesickness caught up with me and I've finally arrived to the great state of Texas after a long vacation!


I love my work as a teacher and enjoy designing thoughtful activities to engage students in learning skills to solve real-world biological problems. In addition to teaching, I am also the faculty sponsor for Interact at LCHS, a wonderful club that believes in "Service before Self". My classroom motto is "Speak Life", as the Latin root word bio translates "life". I believe in creating a classroom culture where students feel comfortable expressing their ideas verbally in a class discussion model and apply their learning in group projects. Science is highly collaborative and requires good communication skills, not just discovery of information to apply in isolation.

When I'm not hard at work in school, I'm usually singing (professional or at church), serving with Rotary, researching family genealogy or chilling with my sweet fuzzy friend Bon-Bon.

Advanced Biology is a course designed to prepare students for the Advanced Placement® (AP) Biology course. This lab-oriented class is designed to provide an introduction to biological topics stressed in the AP® course. Students will learn process skills involved in scientific problem solving which will allow them to become self-starters and independent workers in the AP® course. Areas stressed will be cellular and molecular biology, environmental biology, and phylogeny. All laboratory exercises are designed to reinforce concepts and process skills. This course differs from the level class in pace, depth of laboratory analysis and application of mathematical modeling.

Environmental Systems will cover major environmental topics such as acid rain, biodiversity, climate change, energy, the atmosphere, water, soil, human populations and pollution. Because this is a science class, it will also have a laboratory component to help master these topics. Labs also allow you, the student, to learn more about the environment through first-hand observation.
