Describe your teaching experience and interests in a brief public biography (200 words)
I began teaching in a botanical garden setting and quickly realized I wanted to be in the classroom. Since that time, I have taught a mixture of 6-12 grades for 11 years, six in Arizona and five in Colorado. While I have taught just about every subject possible in science, Botany is my first love and specially teaching students about plants. I now teach a combination of Biology and Honors Biology courses and incorporate plant science in as much as possible.
