I have been at Cox Mill since its opening and have had the wonderful opportunity of teaching all levels of biology.  Outside of school, I enjoy spending my time traveling, gardening, mountain biking, hiking, and watching athletic events.
On my webpage, you will find important information for all classes. In the links to the left, you will find the daily homework assignments, syllabus, and class expectations under the "basics" sections.  For each course, you will also find notes that are available for you to download and print to refer to during class discussion.
The best way to reach me is by email.  I'm looking forward to a great school year!
