I am one of the science teachers at Baker High School.  I am married to the love of my life, Tyler, and have three beautiful children.  I have two sons, Christian (17) and Caleb (16), and a brand new baby girl named Kopelyn (6 months).  I spent many years being a stay at home mom, but began realizing that they would soon be off to college themselves.  It was then that I realized that I needed to fulfill my dream of becoming a teacher.  I believe that my children have helped me understand kids and how to connect with them on a personal level so that I can reach them on an educational level as well.  

I have always loved the sciences and knew that whatever career I ended up doing would involve it.  During my high school years, I had one of those teachers that inspired me to better myself and strive to do the best that I could.  It was because of him that I wanted to become a teacher myself.  It is because of him that I understand the important role that teachers can have in the lives of children.  I believe that it is the responsibility of the teacher and the administration to help parents build a strong sense of self within their child as well as provide the type of education that will ensure their future success.  My philosophy is that students learn best when they feel safe, appreciated, and cared for.
