Welcome to 5th grade Science!

5th grade is an exciting time!  Lockers, letter grades on report cards, changing classes each hour and several different teachers throughout the day!  Middle School is a time for growth, in many areas of a young person's life.  My goal is to help students grow and develop academically, socially, and emotionally.  I feel that everyone has their own level of success they aim for and different challenges to overcome.   No matter what goals you strive for or what obstacles you come up against, I will support and guide you in your journey to success! 

This is my second year at Jordan Middle School.  I grew up in Sisseton, South Dakota and received my Bachelor of Science in Biology from South Dakota State University in Brookings, SD.  I am currently working on my Masters in Teaching from Bethel University.  I am married and we have two children, a six-year-old daughter and a four-year-old son.  We also have a nine-year-old Welsh Corgi named Vrgil.   In addition to my love of helping others learn, I love sports, particularly the NFL, spending time with my family and friends, baking (and eating smiley), watching documentaries about the world of science and history, and reading.
