Biography: I was born and raised outside of Chicago, Illinois (Go Bears!). I moved to Texas after graduating college to work as a zookeeper at the Fort Worth Zoo. I left working at the zoo full-time in 2008 to become a teacher but I continue to work in the Animal Outreach department part-time. I love sharing my animal experiences with the students and bringing the Outreach animals from the zoo to our school every year! My husband and I live in Fort Worth and we have a beautiful, energetic five year old daughter. This is my 13th year teaching and my 13th year at MLP! I love this school and cannot imagine teaching anywhere else! I have taught 5th grade Science every year and this will be my first year teaching Math. I teach because these children are the future. They will be the ones making the decisions in this world before too long. I want to prepare them with enough scientific knowledge and appreciation to make informed judgements to keep this country and this planet going
