Welcome to my class! I believe that everyone can learn physics, and I work hard to make sure that my students are engaged in genuinely interesting work that addresses the standards. I've done two research projects at national laboratories: one in 2012 at the National Optical Astronomy Observatory studying light pollution and another in 2014 at SLAC National Accelerator Center studying the polarization of the synchrotron beam. I taught 3 years at Betty Fairfax and this is my second year as a Mustang. I'm excited to be here!

Teaching Philosophy: I believe in a growth mindset. No one starts out as an expert in anything. We all need to be willing to learn and improve. If at first, you don't succeed, learn from failure and try again. Failure is celebrated as a learning opportunity.
1) Engage in behaviors which enhance the learning process and refrain from those that interfere.
2) Read ALL the words and always do your best.
3) Treat others the way you would like to be treated.
