Welcome to our Classroom Website
    I've been working with Middle School age students for over 25 years, and teaching in the classroom for over 14 years.  I've been in Anoka-Hennepin  Schools for about 7 years.  The middle school years are a great time to teach, learn and do science.   We will work hard, build new skills, learn new things and have a little fun!  In my free time I like to spend time with my family, do many outdoor activites, attend music events and play a little.  Other than teaching middle schoolers science, I have also been an aquatic biologist, naturalist, and an archery instructor/coach.
    On this webpage you should find a link to a homework/important dates calendar.  This calendar can give you information about homwork due, what we are doing in class, up coming due dates and test dates.  The information is in a shortened form so if you have any questions ask your student or please ask me.
    The 6th Grade Science Team is also working on a Web Page that will provide resources, links, and more information to help all our students in their success.  Please check the 6th Grade Science page as we will make updates as time progresses.
    This year I am teaching 4 Classes at CRMS.  With this in mind my day ends at 2PM.  While I wil be working many times after 2PM, I will generally not be availble after this time.  I have Office Hours on Day 1  7:30 to 8:00AM  and 1:30 to 2:PM.  We can also possibly find other times to meet or talk as needed.
    Thank you for supporting your student's education! I am excited to work with your child and watch their growth. Together we can help your child achieve success!
