I began my teaching career as an elementary teacher in the Dallas School District  20 years ago, and most recently spent 5 years teaching full-time high school Math and Science classes for Chemeketa Community College.  I currently teach part-time at Chemeketa in the Reading and Study Skills department.  I returned to WOU in 2013 as a graduate student in Earth Science and teach part-time for WOU in Adolescent Learning and Development courses and Science and Math teaching methods for the Department of Education.


I love learning and continue to pursue new opportunities to expand my knowledge in the area of Teacher Education and Science.  I enjoy the diversity of the populations I work in my various roles and hope to instill a love of learning in all my students. My husband and I have 6 children and 10 grandchildren.  I love to travel, and I am currently on a quest to visit volcanoes around the world.
