Welcome!

I am one of the 8th grade Earth Science teachers here at Justice Page Middle School. In addition to teaching 8th grade Science, I am also the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) Integration Specialist, Rhino Pride Advisor, Future City Coach, and Editor-In-Chief of our school newspaper, The Rhino Report. I have been teaching Middle School Science for Minneapolis Public Schools since 2006 within schools in North and South Minneapolis. I have also worked as a Youth and Family Programs teacher at the Science Musuem of Minnesota.

I completed my Bachelor of Science degree in Education and Middle School Science with a Minor in Music at St. Cloud State University. I also studied Pan-Africa and South African History, Culture, and Music at the University of Port Elizabeth (now Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University) in Port Elzabeth, South Africa. 

Outside of school, I enjoy urban cycling, music, reading, getting tattoos, spending time with my spouse and our cat, exploring, and just generally staying busy.

If you need to contact me, email is best for a quick response.
