        Welcome to the Ram Fam! Here in Science we love to have fun while we learn. I look forward to another great year here at Riverside, and I look forward to meeting you. You may have me for Research Biology, Academic Biology or Environmental Science. I graduated from Christopher Newport University, go Captains! When I am not at school doing what I love, I enjoy being in the outdoors with my husband and two dogs, Heidi and Colt. I was born and raised in Virginia but enjoy traveling to explore new places! Let's have a great year! Check the tabs to your left for information on your individual course.

    We do actively participate as a Bring Your Own Device classroom and will have chromebooks used periodically in class this year - I ask students to keep their cell phones and computers away unless directed to be used for academic purposes, and expect respect of other students by not taking pictures in the classroom. Parents please refrain from reaching out to your students during class time and often discuss the importance of being both mentally and physically present in class as the #1 way to influence performance and retaining new information. Thank you!
