Welcome to my page!
This is my first year teaching at TVHS and I'm excited to be a new member of the Golden Bear family. I hold a bachelor's degree in physics from UCSD and I also attended graduate school for astronomy for a brief stint after undergrad, but left when my first child was born to focus on family for a while. Many moons ago I also worked as a chemist first doing organic chemistry, and then moving into analytical chemistry. I've taught physics labs at UCSD, astronomy at Boston University, and general science to 2nd - 5th graders, however my favorite age group to work with by far is high school students.
In addition to my love of science and teaching, I have 5 kids. My oldest two are students here at TVHS. I also have a 5th grader, a 1st grader, and a little one in preschool.
One of the only things I love more than science is teaching! I look forward to getting to know all of my students and hope you all have an amazing year!
