Teacher Bio:

Prior to teaching high school science, I worked as a research scientist and technician for over a decade, most recently at Lehigh University in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences. I enjoy being in the classroom, working with students, and teaching courses that are a big part of how I see the world through a scientific lens. My husband and I enjoy outdoor activities, working on our house and spending time with friends and our dogs.

Welcome to AP Environmental Science! (APES)


Please bring these supplies to class: 3 ring binder, folders for organizing course documents, paper for note taking and drawing diagrams, and writing utensils. Please also have a personal computer for working on class assignments. If you have questions about class materials, I am happy to discuss and we will talk about course materials during our first week as a class.


APES is an exciting and relevant course that provides students with opportunities to experience lab and field science. I look forward to field trips during the 2021/2022 school year! Please visit my classroom, room 201 on the second floor of Old Main if you would like to find out more about APES!


In this class, we begin by examining Earth’s natural systems and the processes that cycle energy, matter and nutrients through the atmosphere, hydrosphere, lithosphere and biosphere. After we gain an understanding and appreciation for these systems and processes, we look at specific ways that human culture and society have impacted natural systems and cycles. We will also study important environmental legislation and policy and examine how environmental scientists apply scientific knowledge toward solving complex problems.


Classroom expectations and assignments can be located in the APES Google Classroom.

In this course we will explore our planet and our solar system and learn about fascinating concepts that take us to our deepest oceans, our furthest stars and everywhere in between (well almost everywhere).
