About Me

 The Middle School Science Curriculum for 8th Grade focuses on topics from Life Science, Physical Science, Space/Earth Science, and STS (Science, Technology, and Society). Some of the specific units include Genetics and Natural Selection, the Solar System, Sound and Light, and Force and Motion.

 QUALIFICATIONS

I am Enthusiastic, Creative, Detail Oriented, Knowledgeable and Driven. Excellence rather than average is my standard. 

My mission...  If you want to be successful, be excellent. IF you want the best that the world has to offer, offer the world your best. Always give 100% in every circumstance so that you live without regret. Capitalize on the gifts you were given.  Find your passion, love your life and live your dream.

I am currently on the advisory board for Worlds of Connections, an NIH-funded project which spreads knowledge and excitement about network science among members of underrepresented minority communities to support diversity in bio-behavioral and biomedical careers.
