It has been my pleasure to teach science at Liberty High School for two years now. After graduating magna cum laude from YSU with a Bachelors of science degree in Biology with minors in chemistry and music, I worked in several labs including the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, MA. After a few years in the lab, I realized that I missed human interaction and thought that teaching would be a way to make those connections while also making a positive difference in the world. I was accepted into the NYC Teaching Fellows program and taught in Brooklyn, NY for five years while completing my Masters of Science in Teaching at Pace University in Manhattan.
After my first child was born in 2008, we moved back to Youngstown and I began teaching at Mahoning County High School where I taught many different science subjects for 6 years. I was thrilled to become a Liberty Leopard in 2016 and look forward to a long career here at LHS. One of the highlights of this school year was bringing back the Liberty Robotics Team after a short hiatus. We competed at the NEOREP robotics competition at YSU and our team won second place for design!
While not teaching or coaching, my husband and I are busy raising our three children. They are involved in their own activities and keep us on our toes. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, concerns or suggestions. Go Leopards!
