     A Little about me:

    I have been a science teacher at West Linn High School for the past 29 years.  During that time I've had the opportunity to teach many of our different science classes ranging from Biology to Chemistry and Physics.  I particularly enjoy the challenge and variety of teaching different classes. 

    I graduated with a major in Biology and a minor in Chemistry from Willamette University, but spent a lot of time in many other math and physics classes.  I received by teaching certificate at Willamette as well, but only after spending some time out there in the "real" world.  During this time before teaching I worked as a seasonal biologist for a consulting firm and the U.S. Forest Service.  Most of my work involved collecting data for environmental impact statements.  I can do a mean Spotted Owl call.  During the winter months I worked as a ski instructor at a very small ski resort in Eastern Oregon.  In fact it was while working as a ski instructor that I realized teaching could be a possible career I'd like.

    Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my family and being as active as possible.   I enjoy being as active as possible, backpacking in the summer, and skiing in the winter, though my main hobby is fly fishing.  In the fall any free time I can get is often spent somewhere on the Deschutes River pursuing steelhead with a fly rod.
