I am a chemistry teacher at Washington Technology Magnet School in Saint Paul, Minnesota. I have a PhD in Natural Resources Science and Management from the University of Minnesota where my research focused on making compostable polymers from plant materials. I am amazed by this universe we live in and the interactions between matter and energy that occur throughout it – from those that take place on the nanoscopic scale to those that occur in the vast expanse of space. I feel a deep and vested interest in the conservation of our fragile and beautiful Earth. I love to learn, and feel that I am able to more deeply appreciate the universe around me the more I understand it. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, jogging, biking, hiking, swimming, cooking, and doing nearly anything outdoors. I look forward to our journey this summer of constructing knowledge to learn about outer space, astronomy, the solar system, and how we know what we know!
