I am providing our students with opportunities to develop skills and permission to have and share opinions. I aim to help them think logically and empathically about people and problems. Students can google science facts. I’m here for their psyche -- for their souls. I’m an adult who recognizes their worth and helps them see their God-given gifts. I want to be a safe place where they can take a risk, fail, and risk again. They see my passion for science and that gives them permission to have passion as well.
