I started my teaching career as an adjunct instructor at Stony Brook University teaching animal physiology. In 2007 I began teaching science at WFHS (Living Environment for the first 4 years then I shifted to Regents/Honors Chemistry which I currently teach. I earned a B.S. in Biology & Chemistry and a M.A.T. in Science Education from Stony Brook University. I am currently working towards a PhD in Science Education from Stony Brook University where I am studying science teacher turnover (attrition & migration). In addition, I am a peer reviewer for the Journal of Chemical Education and a science education researcher. Most recently, I have been appointed to New York State's Reimagine Education Advisory Council. When I am not teaching I spend my time surfing, playing drums in a band, volunteering as a firefighter and rescue diver and hanging with my son Elliott at the beach.

In December 2016, I received the Stony Brook University 40 under 40 award for my contributions to the field of education. This was a great honor and I am proud to be a SBU graduate. www.stonybrook.edu/40underforty/
