Science Teacher

Where do you live?

I live in Cloquet with my family.

Why did you become a teacher?

I really like explaining how science works to students. I've always had a love for the outdoors and science seemed like a good fit.

Why did you choose BlueSky?

BlueSky is a great school where you can individualize your learning and learn at a time that works for you.

I was looking for a new school to teach for after moving up North and found Blue Sky. I loved the idea of teaching online.

What do you think makes BlueSky special?

The individual attention that we are able to give our students!

What do you like to do when you're not teaching?

I like to do just about anything outside. In the summer months I like to run, garden, hike, camp and fish. I've just started running half marathons (13.1 miles) even though I once said I'd never run that far in my life. In the winter months I like to skate and ski.

If there were one thing you could tell people about BlueSky, what would it be?

BlueSky is a great school where you can individualize your learning and learn at a time that works for you.
