School:
Pocatello Community Charter School

Years Teaching:
7

Degree:
I graduated from Hope College, Holland, MI in 1993 with a double major in biology and psychology. I received an MNS in Biological Sciences in 2002 from ISU.

Graduate Partner:
Pamela O'Hearn

Special Accomplishments/Interests:
I really love getting my students outside to learn about and improve the natural world. At my former school we constructed a wetland and at PCCS my classes are trying to solve some of our landscaping woes by incorporating native plant species into the landscape.

How will you continue to integrate an aspect of GK-12 and your partnership with graduate students into your teaching, philosophy, etc.?
Collaborate with Pamela to design a curriculum that is inquiry-based, follows a logical progression, and challenges my students.

How has the GK-12 experience changed you, and how has your participation changed the GK-12 project?
