BB6 Science!


Welcome to BB6! Thanks for visiting my page! I'm very excited to be back at BB6 for what is sure to be an AMAZING year. This is my fifth year at BB6 and my twelth year teaching science. I absolutely love what I do and hope that my students see that every day in my classroom. My classroom is a place where I strive to provide a safe, fun, exciting, and challenging environment where my students feel successful in some way every day. Please feel free to contact me anytime, I'd love to hear from you!
