  • Teacher: Science 


I am a high school science teacher taking a sabbatical for the 2010-2011 school year to work on the MSP through the Colorado State University Natural Resource Ecology Laboratory as a Teacher in Residence. I have taught science at Rocky Mountain High School here in Fort Collins for 22 years. My areas include the physical and environmental sciences. Classes I taught this last year (2009-2010) include AP Environmental Science, Earth Systems Science, and Astronomy. 


I have taught environmental science for nearly 20 years and have been active in environmental issues in the Fort Collins community for the same time. I have also sposored an environmental club at Rocky Mountain High School and our club has been recognized for establishing a very successful recycling program for a school of 2000+ students as well as energy conservation. I have collaborated with several different projects at Colorado State University including GK-12 programs with the CSU NREL and also as an educational specialist with the Center for Multi-Scale Modelling of Atmospheric Processes (CMMAP) at Colorado State University. In 2007 I received an E-cheivement award from the nationally syndicated radio program E-Town. Also in 2008 I helped create the Colorado Global Climate Conference for Colorado, a project of CMMAP. I will be spending this year conducting research with the CSU NREL as well as developing curriculum with the MSP.
