I have been teaching physics for thirty years. My teaching career began in Montgomery County, Maryland where I taught earth science, lab science and physics. In 1990, I taught physics in one of the earliest IB programs in Maryland. As a supplemental job, I also taught two evening classes at the Yeshiva of Greater Washington.  In 1994, my husband had a job transfer and we moved to Colorado.  I worked at Arvada West High School for four years and then moved to Dakota Ridge High School in 2000.  During the summer, I have conducted research at the National Bureau of Science and Technology, Battelle National Labs, and the National Renewable Energy Labs. When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with family and friends in the mountains and on the rivers of Colorado.
