Marine Biology will address the history and physical characteristics of the ocean. Topics will include bathymetry, sea floor spreading, life cycle of an island, winds and the Coriolis effect, water chemistry and salinity. Other areas of focus will include the ecology of ocean zones and communities. Organisms will be explored through microscopy, dissection, and modeling.
Biology will be an inquiry and laboratory-based study of living organisms and their interactions with the environment.  Topics will include cells, molecular basis of heredity, interdependence of organisms, biological evolution, matter, energy, and organization of living systems and comparative anatomy/biodiversity.

About Me

I'm originally from Arizona, I've lived here my entire life.  I attended ASU for my Bachelor's and Master's degree.  At ASU, I earned a BAE in Secondary Education with an emphasis in Biology, and a MS in Biology, focusing on Limnology and Oceanography.

This is my fifth year at Campo Verde, and I could not be more excited.  In addition to teaching High School, I have also been teaching with Rio Salado College for the past seven years.

At CV, I've taught a range of science classes, including: Biology, Honors Biology, Ecology, Marine Biology, and Astronomy.

Away from work, I enjoy outdoor activities such as astronomy, hiking, camping, fishing, kayaking, snorkeling, boogie boarding, and other related activities.  I also enjoy landscaping, gardening, and horticulture.
