Welcome to my Web Page! This page is a work in progress, so be sure to check back often for updates.
I am currently the Math and Science Teacher for the 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students at St. Pius V Catholic School in Buena Park. This year in Science we will be following the NGSS Integrated Curriculum. This simply means that each grade will get a chance to explore Physical Science, Life Science, and Earth Science in the course of the school year. In Math, we will continue with the Common Core Standards, and lots and lots of IXL!
This year is going to be filled with a lot of activities and opportunities to learn! The students will be combining Math and Science often. Students can look forward to exploring potential and kinetic energy while building paper roller coasters, or exploring chemical and physical changes in an Exploration Station Lab. Later in the year we will be having a Junior High Science Fair, where the students can showcase what they've learned while exploring scientific questions of interest to them.
I have spent the past 25 years teaching-it is truly my passion! I try to bring as many of my life experiences to the classroom as possible, whether it is my experience as a professional musician and band director, my Junior High Montessori training, my lifelong love of my Catholic faith, my wonderful family life, or any of the other things that make up my world. I think the world of my "cherubs" at St. Pius V, and truly love coming to work every day.
