I am a retired high school science teacher after teaching 35 years. I spent the last 30 years at Lakeville High School where I taught a variety of science classes including Biology, Anatomy & Physiology, Medical & Health Professions and the PLTW (Project Lead the Way) Biomedical STEM classes. I helped get our PLTW Biomedical STEM program started at Lakeville North High School and served as the program coordinator. I started our Lakeville North HOSA chapter in 2007 and served as the chapter advisor until 2022. During this time we have consistently increased our membership and service to our community. I also have been a gymnastics coach for over 35 years, during this time I have been part of 13 State Championships and multiple section and conference championships. I also enjoy coaching the preschool classes.
