Welcome to another great year of school at Jordan High School!

I am looking forward to my eighth year of teaching at Jordan High School, and my fourteenth year of teaching overall! 

Here's a little information about myself: I graduated in 1999 from North Dakota State University in Fargo, ND with a major in zoology and minors in biology and chemistry.  In 2003, I graduated from Minnesota State University Moorhead with teaching degrees in middle school science and high school life science.  I then returned to North Dakota State University to complete my Masters in Science Education, which I finished in 2008.  My specialty areas include cardiology, wildlife, and species conservation.  I also spent 10 years working as a paramedic at FM Ambulance Service in Fargo, ND.  I have greatly enjoyed my years in teaching, and appreciate the teacher-student and teacher-parent connections that I have formed here at Jordan High School.  My goal is to make science interesting, and to promote student interest in the world of science around them!

I am excited to be teaching my fifth year of College in the Schools (CIS) Physiology. Students taking this course have the opportunity to participate in a college-level class focusing on the human body and how it works. Upon successful completion of the course, students receive 4 credits that can be applied towards their college graduation.

This year, I will be teaching two sections of Biology, as well as Anatomy & Physiology, Environmental Science, and CIS Physiology.  My CIS tutor hour is Hour 2, and I am available both before school and after school to help students.

Please feel free to contact me at , or call (952) 492-4440 if you have any questions regarding my courses, schedules, or assignments.  I am looking forward to a great year with you all!
