Hello, and welcome to my blog! I’m a relatively new high school teacher, with qualifications to teach Math, Physics, General Science, and Special Education. Currently, I’m an occasional teacher in Southwestern Ontario.
I spent the first 22 years of my life in Calgary, Alberta, where I received a Bachelors of Science in Physics. After taking a short-term job in industry with an electrical motor company in Edmonton, I decided to pursue graduate school in Astronomy and moved to Winnipeg to get my Master of Science, then on to London (Ontario) to get my PhD in Astronomy.
During graduate school, I became deeply involved with science education and public outreach (EPO) programs, and that is where I discovered my love of teaching and being in the classroom. So, I continued working in EPO for a few years before I finally applied to the BEd program to formally become a high school teacher! I’ve been teaching since 2015.

Thanks for visiting, and I hope you enjoy reading this blog as much as I enjoy writing it!
