Welcome Message: “Imagination is more important than knowledge.” — Albert Einstein
I have taught at Pleasant Valley for more than two decades. I have taught nearly 30 years in both New Jersey and Pennsylvania, and have taught children in grades 4, 5, and 6. I have a passion for science, and for teaching children to enjoy and respect science.
My science role models are Albert Einstein, Dr. Neil DeGrasse Tyson, and Bill Nye. I have worked with NASA for many years to bring space-themed educational opportunities to children, and I still use space exploration to make physical science interesting.
Though I may not be a “warm and fuzzy” teacher, most students realize I am fair, hold them to high expectations, and enjoy helping children grow and learn. I also have a nearly endless supply of truly awful science jokes.
Activities: I am PVI’s Science Curriculum Leader.
