Welcome to 6th grade science! This is my first year with Strong Middle School. Not only am I new to the district, I am also new to the state of Michigan after a recent move from Minnesota for my husband's residency with Wayne State University. This is my 5th year of teaching 6th grade science, and I am looking forward to making connections with students at Strong Middle School. I am also looking forward to help them gain confidence with science concepts, and develop a love of learning. In the 2021-2022 school year, I was nominated for the annual Minnesota Teacher of the Year. I have also just earned my Masters in Natural Science and Environmental Education from Hamline University in St. Paul, Minnesota.
