Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to the science room! This will be my 6thyear teaching science at Maxfield. Ilove our Maxfield community, and I’m passionate about our outstanding science program. My teaching philosophy is that children are natural scientists; they explore their world through investigating, testing, and evaluating. Our science program builds on the skills all children already have and guides them to become critical thinkers.
I encourage families to come join your child in the science room and see firsthand what we’re learning. The most frequent comment I hear from parents who visit the science room is; “I wish we had this when I was in school!”
If you can’t visit us in person, you can see what’s going onin the science room by following us on Twitter. @MaxfieldScience
I have a B.S. in elementary education and pre-primaryeducation with a specialty certification in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). I live here in St. Paul with my husband Todd, and lots of books, plants, and pets. Our children are St. Paul Public School graduates who are currently both freshmen in college. In my free time I enjoy coaching our after school robotics programing team (Lego League). I also enjoy backpacking, reading, watching movies, cooking, volunteering, and gardening.
