    Welcome to a class that explores the wonders of this magnificent world. Science has drawn me in ever since watching Bill Nye the Science Guy show's first airing in 4th grade. I am very excited to share this passion with you. A few noteworthy pieces of my scientific career starts in my university years. There I researched the insects of our valley's beloved mountain: Timpanogos. After graduating with a degree in Biology I worked as an Ecologist on The Great Salt Lake monitoring birds, bugs, and brine shrimp by riding in small planes, air boats, cabin cruisers, and ATVs. It was a very fun job. I then moved to the Moran Eye Center at the University of Utah doing research on eye development. In 2015 I shifted into teaching and love being a Highlander at Timpanogos Middle School.
    When I am not in my classroom, I usually am swing dancing, reading, engaging in mindful practices, creating something with my hands, or pouring love into my home here in Heber that my great-grandmother moved into in 1920.
