I went to DMACC to earn my AA degree, and to Grandview college to earn my teaching degree. 


I taught middle school science for 5 years. I co-taught in high school in Biology and in Chemistry. Currently I am teaching high school science in the area of physical science, biology and intro to chemistry . 


I am married and I have one daughter. I grew up in Poland (country) and moved to Des Moines in 1991. I have been teaching science at East Union since 2009. I have been very eager to do my best as a classroom teacher. To my classroom I bring in hands on inquiry to learn various topics. My students do research to deepen their knowledge.  My students have personal choices on how they learn best through the various options they are given. I am also sponsoring a science club outside of school hours. 

I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. i like reading and staying active through running, biking, hiking, and anything else that sounds as a good activity at the time.
