I currently teach middle and high school in a rural school in Morrison Oklahoma.I am fortunate to teach a variety of sciences for middle school and I teach the life science portion of high school (Biology I and II, Anatomy) as well as Forensics. I have been drawn to science since I was a small child and have always had a love for plants. I was determined to earn a Botany degree, but not all classes I needed were being offered at the time so I sought to fill those gap in the department of Agronomy. I continued the Agriculture path with a focus on plant stress physiology for my Masters. After graduation I did research in a lab at OSU and then transitioned to a field position at the University of Arkansas. I worked in vegetable research for three years with a lot of time spent in extension work as well. Working with others and educating different individuals led me a career as a teacher. I wanted to introduce students to the science and get them engaged and spark some interest.
I am preparing a lesson for NGSS MS-LS2-5
