I love learning and helping others learn.  I enjoy taking long walks in the woods and finding and collecting interesting things.  Sometimes what I collect are photographs.  I make things out of wood, love to travel, and listen to music all the time.  I especially love chocolate eclairs and tea.

I began work as an elementary teacher at the Museum of Life and Science in Durham.  I founded the LS science lab in 1990, and taught PK-5th grade science classes for 6 years.  I taught US science classes for two years before moving to Duke School, where I worked as a classroom teacher.   I taught mostly 6th grade from 2000-2008. I returned to the Ravenscroft  lower school science lab in 2008.  Yep, that’s a much younger me in the picture!

I have been teaching science (and sometimes math) since 1989.  Before that I enjoyed work as a Mass Spectrometrist , an analytical chemist, and especially as a prototype model-maker.  While in college at NCSU, my seven cats and I built our own house.  And, if you went back far enough in time, you’d find baby Patrick in Paris for the first year of his life.  Je suis Parisienne!
