About Me

Hello! This is my 12th year teaching at Tomball High School! This year I am teaching AP Biology and Biology PAP. I am looking forward to a truly productive school year. While science courses are tough, students gain a rewarding sense of accomplishment when they succeed. My hope is to guide each one of my students to a level of accomplishment that makes them feel proud. The benefit is that the students learn about life in the world around them. Knowing about the how life functions helps students become very productive citizens and will allow them to make informed decisions throughout their lives.

Just a little about my teaching qualifications...I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Animal Science and a Masters in Agriculture from California State Polytechnic University in Pomona and a PhD in Animal Science (Equine Exercise Physiology) from Texas A&M University. I taught at the university level for several years and was a tenured professor. Now I am enjoying teaching at the high school level! 

Not only do I teach at THS, but my children attend THS.  My oldest daughter graduated last year and is a freshman at TAMU.  My youngest daughter is currently a junior here.  I am looking forward to a truly awesome 2017-2018 school year! Welcome to Tomball High School!
