Welcome to Yellow Science 7 2020-2021!
There are so many changes and new things happening! I am thrilled to be new to the yellow team, yet this will be my 22nd year in the district. The science curriculum is new. The hybrid model of learning is new. I will encourage and support each student through all these changes.
Things I love: family, dogs, hiking, camping, traveling, National Parks, mountains, skiing.
