I have had the privilege of teaching at Hemingway since 2000. I graduated from the University of South Dakota with a B.A. in Education and received my M.A. degree in education with an endorsement as a reading specialist. As Hemingway transitioned into a STEAM school, I have participated in many professional development opportunities such as two NSTA conventions, a STEAM National Convention in Denver, a number of Idaho Science Conventions, and two STEAM inservice workshops specific to the introduction and implementation of a STEAM program at Hemingway. Additionally I have served for many years on the BCSD science committee with the goal of incorporating the most current global science teaching practices and materials into the curriculum. I look forward to being a part of the groundbreaking team who will transition Hemingway into a first class STEAM School!
