Welcome to 7th Grade Life Science! I am very excited to be your science teacher. The 2017-2018 school year will be my 10th year teaching at Pioneer. My undergraduate studies were completed at the University at Buffalo School of Pharmacy with a B.S. in pharmaceutical marketing. Before pursuing a career in education, I worked in sales for a medical equipment company and an investment firm. I realized I truly missed science and wanted to help others to learn about life and our planet, so I began my journey towards a graduate degree from D'Youville College in Adolescence Education. I am very passionate about many areas of science including genetics, evolutionary biology, and pharmacology.My husband Eric, cat named Joe, and I reside in East Amherst, NY. We especially enjoy traveling to warm spots, such as Florida, Arizona, Myrtle Beach, and Nevada! Tennis is also a BIG part of my life! I played Division I tennis for UB and continue to play competitively in the Western New York area. I've worked as a tennis instructor and enjoyed helping people of all ages improve their tennis skills. I've been a captain of USTA tennis teams for many, many years. Golf is a fairly new sport adventure for me. Playing sports with friends and my husband keeps me smiling.I am a Buffalo Bills and Sabres fan! You'll ALWAYS find me cheering on the UB Bulls too!
I look forward to being your teacher this year!
