Personal Glimpse

I enjoy talking about science with anyone who is willing to listen! My students are my audience. I love to talk with them about the world around them so they have a better understanding of the planet on which they live. I particularly love it when students come to me and say "I saw this on TV" or "I saw this on the internet." It makes me feel like they are interested, too! I have loved science since I was a child, and I like to communicate that enchantment to my students.
