Welcome to Biology and IB Biology!
This is my fourth year to teach at Roosevelt and I love being a part of the Roosevelt team.
I majored in biology at the University of Washington in Seattle. I am working towards my Master's degree in science education from the University of Minnesota.
I have had many science jobs, including tracking orcas in the Strait of Juan de Fuca, conducting tree surveys in forests in Washington, and conducting experiments on epithelial cells as part of two research teams studying Alzheimer's disease and colon and pancreatic cancer. I even have a cell line named after me!
I live in the Roosevelt neighborhood and have two boys who go to school in Minneapolis.
When I'm not at Roosevelt, you can find me riding bikes and camping with my family or trying to play the ukelele in a band.
The best way to contact me is email: firstname.lastname@example.org
You can find me in room 257.
On this page you can find your course-at-a-glance, class syllabus, and links to helpful websites.
For updates from class, see this course on MYMPS.
Come find me after school until 4pm or schedule a time to meet with me.

I will work to help all of my students be successful.
*My students can expect that I will get to know them and help them to get to know other students in the class. We will build a community of learners together.
*As a class we will build a set of classroom expectations that all students will be expected to follow.
*Students who show positive behaviors can expect to receive positive feedback.
*Consequences will consist of reminders, redirections, seat changes and a conference with the teacher. Phone calls home and conferences with the dean or other support staff and additional interventions will follow as necessary.
