My Role at BlueSky
Science teacher and advisor
How I Came to BlueSky
After about 20 years of classroom teaching, I wanted the opportunity to work more closely and individually with students than the traditional classroom allows.
What Makes BlueSky Special to Me
Our students and staff. I've never worked with a more dedicated, compassionate staff, and I love the chance to work with students one on one, and individualize my attention to them.
My Passions and Hobbies
I'm a writer and photographer, and occasionally freelance for local papers. I love being outdoors, hiking, and watching birds, and live with a couple of feathered friends - Owen, a Senegal parrot, and Harriet, a cockatiel who flew up to me when I was bird watching.
My Most Memorable Experience at BlueSky
So hard to decide. The best moments have been when a student I'm working with gradually - or suddenly - figures out a concept or problem and can do it on their own.
