"The more I study Science, the more I believe in God." - Albert Einstein

Welcome to my webpage! I love that I have a position where I get to combine the wonders of Science and the wonders of God. After graduating from the University of Southern California many moons ago, I taught a variety of grade levels and subjects in a variety of types of schools including Science and Religion in a private Catholic school. Now I get to revisit these favorite subjects here at St. P's in Junior High!  I am thrilled to be back in the classroom with these amazing students and really looking forward to the fun-filled and enriching year of exploration ahead!

Here are some topics and field trips per grade level that we will cover for
