Welcome to 8th Grade Physical Science! I am very excited to begin my first year teaching at Porter. While I am new to Porter, I am not new to teaching. I taught 6th through 8th Grade Science in Alexandria, KY the past two years. I have lived in the Northern Kentucky/Cincinnati, Ohio area for over 17 years. During that time I graduated from Northern Kentucky University with my B.A. in History and Electronic Media and Broadcasting and my M.A. in Teaching. I moved to Virginia not only to teach at Porter but also to start my PhD in International Education at George Mason University.
Created with an image by Fractal Hassan - "There are days I’m wandering around campus at the University of Florida looking for things to photograph. I happened to be in the New Physics building at night (during an event), where there’s a large plasma globe on display. Having a phone that can do long/custom exposure and manual control over focal length, I took a few random shots of it. Honestly there isn’t anything special about this particular photo, but I think it looks cool. ESPECIALLY if you live on a college campus or big city, there’s never an end of things to photograph. It’s not about the camera, it’s about the framing/lighting!"
