Chippewa Middle School

Classroom Team:

Tell us about yourself!

I have been teaching for 11 years. I teach STEM to 6th and 7th graders. I love teaching STEM because my students are able to use problem solving and critical thinking skills to complete various challenges with their teams. I love the excitement students have when they are successful! I am also in charge of Coding Club, Invention Convention, and I lead the PBIS team to help students get rewarded for positive behavior!

Who is your favorite NHL® player and why?

Jonathan Toews because he is a good leader on the team.

What is your favorite part of the Future Goals™program? How do you see STEM in the game of hockey?

Hockey is my favorite sport so I use Future Goals as an early finisher activity for students to complete. I love how they incorporate STEM into hockey!

If you played hockey, what position would you play and why?

Offense because I like shooting for my goals!
