I LOVE creating relevant, engaging resources that make learning fun for students and life a little easier for teachers! I have 18 years of public high school teaching experience, mostly in Hawaii. My primary subjects were Biology and Anatomy & Physiology, but I have also taught Physical, Earth, and Environmental Science. I received my B.S. from UT Chattanooga, my M.Ed. from Chaminade University, and I have been National Board Certified in Science since 2002.
