Hello and Welcome to my home page.  
This is my 7th full year at ASK and my 27th year of teaching science.  I have taught in NM, MI, and HI.  I have a BS in Psychology, a MA in Education, and an EdS in Administration.  I teach chemistry (periods 2, 6, & 7), and Project Lead the Way Human Body Systems (periods 1 & 3).  
I am also a mom of 2.  We live in Star Heights.  In my spare time, I like to read, travel, and swim.  
The easiest way to communicate with me is via email [email protected].  We can then schedule a phone call or meeting.  
If you would like to join the individual classroom webpages, here are the passwords within Google Classroom.

Some general rules for all of my classes are:  
RULES: Class rules are simple. 1.  Be respectful.  2.  Do your best.  3.  Use your time wisely.
Quarter Grades:  Assessments (quizzes, tests, and some labs) will account for 60% of the grade.  
Classwork (daily assignments, some labs, simulations) will account for 40% of the grade. 
HOMEWORK POLICY: Homework is to complete any assignments given or to review notes, concepts, and coursework.  Each scholar is responsible for doing the assignments themselves.  Although the internet may offer assistance, copying the material will not help you learn it.  You are responsible for understanding and comprehending the material. 
LATE WORK POLICY:  All assignments are due on the specified due date.  10% will be deducted for each day late.  Once the unit assessment is given, those assignments are no longer available.  If a scholar has missing assignments from before the unit assessment, they may speak with me to obtain the points through alternate assignments.  
Supplies needed for HBS:  paper, folder, writing utensils, colored pencils, (you may want more extensive materials for projects like poster board, clay, markers, etc)
Supplies needed for chemistry:  paper, writing utensils, scientific calculator, folder
Thank you
