Welcome! I am EXCITED to finally have a full house again in the classroom with students I can interact with in person. I cannot WAIT to get to know you guys and see you learn things hands on. That is what we have been missing and now we get it back! As you will soon learn, our school motto this year is "here we are, stronger than ever" and it is certainly going to ring true in our classroom this year. We are stronger together!
A little about me, this is my 4th year here at Ronald Reagan High School. I taught Anatomy & Physiology at the college level for 8 years but am enjoying teaching it in high school now. I am delighted we have added an additional class of Medical Microbiology, so I get to teach two of those this year. I am looking forward to having my lab FULL of microbiologists working hard!
I am adjunct faculty with San Antonio College which allows me to teach A&P to the dual credit students at Reagan.
I grew up in Beaumont, Texas and moved on to graduate from Texas A&M University with a B.S. in Zoology. I earned my Doctorate in Chiropractic from Parker University in Dallas and then started practicing. After a severe wrist injury, unable to practice chiropractic hands on techniques, I found (unexpected) great joy in teaching. I taught at Brookhaven College and Richland College in Dallas TX. I also enjoyed teaching at Lamar State College- Orange in Orange, Texas.
Now, I am loving teaching the basics of these disciplines to high school students.
Looking forward to sharing my love of Anatomy & Physiology & Microbiology with a new set of students this year!!!
My husband and I have an 18 year old daughter entering Texas A&M (WHOOP!!) as well as a 4 year old daughter in Pre-K. One moving on, one starting fresh! Life is amazing!
