Welcome students and parents to an exciting new year at Career Academy! I am looking forward to seeing my former Cleveland Cadets in our new school and meeting my new Career Academy students.
Biology is the study of life, my favorite science discipline, and is also a state required EOC class. We will be starting the year off refreshing our technology skills and dive into our first unit of evolution by studying a real life problem we are currently facing: antibiotic resistance.
Born in an Air Force family, I moved frequently around the United States and graduated from Warrenton High School, Missouri. I graduated from Maryville University with a B.S. in Biology and shortly after obtained my Masters in Secondary Education. I have been teaching Biology in the district at Cleveland NJROTC for the past 6 years, and this will be my 7th year in the district.
I live in West County with my husband, Caleb, and my two tiny dogs, Pebbles and Peppers. I am very involved in cheerleading, and have been coaching for over 8 years a Varsity and competitive team outside of school. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my husband, my dogs, and coaching cheerleading. I also enjoy working out and various fitness programs and relating fitness and athleticism to the core Biology curriculum.
