How long have you been teaching? 
9 Years!
What is your teacher mission statement? 
As your teacher, I aim to foster a caring space where you will feel free to explore our content through rigorous (and fun!) academic activities. We will ask questions and find the answers together by supporting each other through a process of inquiry, research, communicating findings and reflection. Through this process we will grow as IB learners and open our minds to new information and new perspectives!
What are your goals as a teacher this year? 
My goal this year is to help my students track their learning in a concrete way by recording their grades and reflecting on their own practices as learners. I would also like to expand my knowledge base in science by attending content specific professional development.
