I have been a biology teacher at Goffstown Area High School since 1989. I graduated in 1970 from Merrimack College in North Andover, Massachusetts with a BA in biology. I taught for three years at a private Catholic girl's school, Keith Hall.
In 1973 I gave birth to my daughter, Jayme. From then until my younger daughter Beth was in second grade I was a full time homemaker. My husband, John, the girls, our Pekinese Skul-Lee and I live in a small town just north of the Massachusetts border in Windham, New Hampshire.
In 1986 I started graduate studies at Rivier College in Nashua, NH. I recieved my Master's degree in biology in May of 1990.
At Goffstown High School I am the coordinator of our marine biology floating lab. I am a coach for our Ocean Bowl Team and for four years I was the class advisor for the class of 1998. I serve on the District's Science Curriculum Committee and our Staff Development Commitee.
I was a Teacher-Scholar with the Wright Center at Tufts University in March of 1996. I have presented the interdisciplinary geometry/biology project with my teacher-partner, Paul Stanley, at both the NH regional and the National Mathematics Teachers Conventions.
I have presented an original genetics lesson, " Breeding Yoccums for Fun and Genetic Understanding" at the NSTA convention in LasVegas in 1998.
A lesson plan that I developed was published in an EPA publication for Middle School teachers. "Grief on the Reef" was part of a compilation of lesson plans designed to help educate students about the Coral Reefs.
During the summer of 1999 I participated in the Woodrow Wilson Biology
Institute...and learned to construct this, my first web page!
