Experience

I have taught Chemistry, AP Chemistry, Physics, English I, and several college chemistry and science education courses over the last 15 years -- both full time in the high school classroom and as an interim and non-tenure track faculty member at several universities. Every year I serve as an AP chemistry exam reader scoring the AP chemistry exams. This is an ongoing professional development activity that is a lot of work, but one that I enjoy! My teaching experience has taken place in Nashville, TN,  Cleveland, MS,  and now Desoto County. We moved to Desoto county in the summer of 2016, and I'm glad to be a part of the Lewisburg High School Science department!
