Science Dept, Marian High School
This is my eighth year at Marian High School. Previously, I taught science at the Buffalo Academy of the Sacred Heart, in Buffalo, NY and at the Academy of the Holy Cross, Kensington, MD. I attended St. Mary's College, IN, where I earned a Bachelor's of Science in Chemistry. Many years later, I completed my Master's of Secondary Science Education at Niagara University,NY. This past summer, I participated in the ND Energy Research Experience for Teachers Program, during which I synthesized new molecules to help make safer and smaller rechargeable batteries. I also improved a section of my Chemistry curriculum pertaining to this research.
This year I am teaching Chemistry I (3 sections), Earth/Space Science (1 section) and Honors Chemistry (1 section).
