Degrees and Certifications:
I am a Registered Nurse and after spending many years working in patient care settings, I decided to enter the classroom. I teach Health Science Education which is one of several CTE Programs at Tug Valley. Health Science Education provides a strong foundation for those students pursuing a career in the Health Care Field. My students are provided the knowledge and skills to obtain an entry level job after graduation. They are also provided a workbase experience in the specialty area of their choice at one of our local health care facilities. Like Nursing, teaching is a very rewarding career and you can truly make a difference in lives. I am a member of the leadership team, technology team, and serve as CTE Chair. I also serve as sponsor for Beta, FCA, and HOSA. These clubs provide students many opportunities that help them develop character, as well as teamwork and leadership skills. Tug Valley is a great school with an excellent staff and I am very grateful to be a allowed the opportunity to work with such dedicated individuals.
