This is my fifth year at ACE and I am excited to be back for another great year. Before teaching high school, I was employed at Krueger Middle School for 11 years. There, I was the 6th-grade KSAT Science and Rocketry teacher. As my love for effectively teaching Science has never diminished, I am excited to also teach various Science core and elective classes here at ACE. To keep things interesting, l am able to offer Technology and German I-II courses at the same time as well.
ACE is a non-traditional and creative place, allowing students to think outside the box in order to achieve academic success. As a group, we are so very different but the essence of diversity is precisely that people are very good at different things.
“People want to work hard and will work hard, given the right job and right conditions, because it feels supremely good to excel”
(Hallowell, 2011, p.10).
