Hi!! I am excited to be teaching 7th grade Physical Science at HJHS!  I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Animal Science from California State Polytechnic University in Pomona, Ca and Teaching Credential and Master’s Degree from University of Phoenix in Phoenix, Az. I have worked in education for 15 years as a High School science teacher, Junior High science teacher, and a substitute teacher. I love labs and hands-on activities, so we will do lots of them! I encourage the use of Quizlet for studying vocabulary to prepare for vocabulary quizzes. I am using Class Dojo to communicate with parents, track student participation, and track assignment completion.  I live with my husband and lots of Bulldogs in Panama. My hobby is showing and breeding AKC Bulldogs. I can be reached from 9:05 am to 9:50 am and 3:30 pm to 4 pm daily. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.  My email is or by phone (217) 532-3742.  Open house is September 14, 2017 from 6 pm to 7 pm. I hope to meet all of my student’s parents and guardians!!!
