English is my second language: I was born and raised in the Netherlands. I went through the naturalization process to become an American many years ago to attain the same citizenship as my 3 children.
Welcome Back! I hope you had a great summer!
I visited my family in the Netherlands and in Ohio. Topped off the summer with King Tut and the Chihuly Gardens of Glass in Seattle! Now I am excited to get back to school!
I love my job and I am excited to start my 11th year in the classroom. Prior to teaching, I held jobs as a Medical Technologist (now called Clinical Laboratory Science), as a Research Technician in the semi-conductor industry. I have dabbled in Horticulture and, for a time, I was a Fitness Instructor. I believe life is an adventure!
I look forward to getting to know students, new to my classroom. Together, we will explore more wonders of science, and strive to find explanations for them!
