Welcome Honors Biology/Anatomy/Genetics students!
What a fantastic year we have in store for us!
Although a recent transplant from Colorado, I am quite familiar with Poquoson High School. Born and raised in Newport News, I have always admired the community of Poquoson, including its wonderful support of education. PHS is truly a family, and I know that this year we will embrace all that it has to offer together.
As a native Virginian, I attended the University of Mary Washington where I majored in Biology. Soon after graduation I married my best friend, an Air Force Academy graduate, and we embarked on a life in the military. I received my teaching certification after studying education at San Jose State University. I've taught in Texas, Utah, and most recently, in Colorado.
I am excited to start my fifth year here at PHS! I can't wait to get to know each and every one of you, and look forward to a fun, interactive, and inspiring school year!
Philosophy: It is my job as an educator to furnish opportunities for all children to aspire to new heights as students of science.
