I have been a teacher at BCHS for seven years in the Science Department; starting my "eight is great" year in a BCHS classroom Fall 2013.

A typical courseload in a school year could include any of the the following classes:  Biology I (collaborative and regular), Anatomy and Physiology, Intro to Chemistry/Physics/ Earth and Space Science, Biology II; as well as--Freshmen Gifted, Master Student, and PSY 110 for dual credit with WKU.

I also coached Basketball and Soccer--Girls (Go Lady Bears!), earlier in my career. 

My dad was in the Air Force; I attended dozens and dozens of schools all over the world by the time I was twelve.  He retired to Kentucky--and was brave to do so.  This is my mom's--and her 7 sisters--native state. I am sure  he really misses the military (and the quiet) occasionally.  As for me, for the most, I've stayed in the Bluegrass.  I attended Powell County High School (class of 1997).  While in high school, I played Basketball, ran track, participated in student government and marching band (clarinet, pit and Guard) and held offices in dozens of clubs. I was class president for the duration of my PoCo education.  Upon graduation, I matriculated to Alice Lloyd College, a work study school.  While a student there I was also the athletic trainer and played softball (right field) and ran cross country.  I was even the Homecoming queen; I love telling people that--because it is not something they expect.  At ALC, I received a BA in Biology, Psychology and Sociology (Class of 2001).  Since then I have attended college at Morehead State University (Go Eagles!) and UK( Go Cats!) where I received an MA in Education as well as another Masters in Counseling. I am considering maybe, one day, attaining a PhD... but for now, I am just trying to catch up on plenty of missed sleep.

Over the years, several pets have appeared  in my classroom, and have since passed on:  a Beta fish (Harvey) and Dwarf Hamsters named Latte and Cappie.  I still miss them.  Currently,  There are turtles--Red-Eared Sliders (Kumar and Harold), a black lion head bunny (Luna),   I also had a Great Dane named Apache... He had cancer and we had to say goodbye 9/30/13. It was devastating.  He was my best friend, and I will continue to try to be the person he thought I could be.   Recently, I adopted a puppy from the Humane Society--Chloe.  She is a daschund (weiner dog) and is wicked cute.  Though I love my pets--my brother is my favorite entity in the whole world.  He is awesome.  He is smart (graduated college at 17) and is wicked funny.  I love and miss him.  He is currently enrolled at EKU--and I don't see him as often as I would like.... He lives in Louisivlle and I brave the traffic there just to grab lunch with him.  Jonas Tyler is good people.

When I am not wrangling animals, I enjoy participating in Hot Yoga and playing Disco Golf  in Bowling Green, as well as less active pursuits--like Mario Kart on a Nintendo platform.   I spend a lot of time nerding out with my boyfriend, Douglass.  He is The Best.

I love teaching--it is my joy and passion.  I have always been blessed with hardworking, fun students.
