I joined the science department at Bogota Jr./Sr. High School in Septmeber 2019. As an alumni, I am very happy to be back.
Upon graduation from Bogota I attended The University of Tampa where I earned my Bachelor in Science in Marine Biology. I then attended graduate school at SUNY-Stony Brook University where I earned my PhD in Marine Science. I used genetics, chemistry and technology to study the ecological role of top predators in a tropical marine ecosystem. This year I am teaching Integrated Biology, Forensic Science and Nutritional Science. It is my goal as a teacher to help students hone their skills in research and discovery through inquiry-based learning.
I utilize Google Classroom for class notes and assignments and am available for extra help during my posted office hours.
