Biology Course Syllabus


After 5 years teaching middle school science, high school biology and undergraduate biology lab classes on the east coast, the CO mountains started calling to me. I found my new home at Dakota Ridge in 2004 teaching biology AP biology, IB Biology and coaching JV women's lacrosse. I spent a year as an assessment editor for McGraw Hill where I authored several large state science assessments. I returned to Jeffco and was honored to be hired as their new instructional coach in 2017. I truly feel that I work alongside the most talented and passionate teachers, staff and administrators in Jeffco. Outside of work I enjoy travel and time spent in the mountains.
