SCORE B

I am a science teacher at SCORE B and I currently teach environmental/earth science and biology. I received my Bachelor of Science in microbiology from the University of Maryland, College Park and a Master of Science in secondary education from Old Dominion University.

Before I entered into the teaching world, I worked as a research technician in immunology labs at the FDA, NIH, and UCSD. After working in research, I was a stay-at-home mom and worked on my master’s through an online program with ODU. During that time, I volunteered and worked in various capacities to teach and tutor in schools and colleges. I have since come back to full-time teaching at SCORE.

I enjoy teaching and working with kids of all ages and abilities to meet their academic needs and aspirations.
