My motivation for teaching:
I love science so much that I want to share it with everyone I meet. By teaching I can show my students how to love science.

My favorite quote:
"You have never taught anything until you teach it to your grandmother"

A personal humorous school story:
This happened last week and I will never live it down at school so I may as well share it with the rest of the world also.
In our faculty restroom the sink is on the same wall as the toilet and after flushing and washing my hands I went to grab my school keys off of the back of the sink. Well needless to say instead of grabbing them I knocked them into the toilet and down they went. So yes I flushed my keys down the toilet :) The best part is because I am a science teacher I have 15 keys on my key ring (several of which have no duplicates) so I am now awaiting a plumber to come to school and remove the toilet from the wall to retrieve my keys. :)
