A graduate of UW-Milwaukee, I am a biologist, environmentalist and educator. I understand that the natural world can be a mystery to many, but in my classroom, I seek to unlock those mysteries with my students. Understanding the science of the world around us is critical to understanding how we relate to one another and the environment, allowing us to make informed decisions in all facets of life. I use my passion for the environment and drive to educate others to help others understand the world around them, and provide an environment where students develop their own passions along the way. The enthusiasm of my students is infectious, providing me with more motivation to continue to teach about the world around us.
