Hello HOSM!!! I've been at Lakewood High School for my entire teaching career. I've found it to be a wonderful place to learn and grow as a teacher and as a person. I believe it's a privilege to be a part of students' educational journey and I'm constantly working to find new ways to make learning science interesting and relevant.
