Classroom Team:

Tell us about yourself!

My most memorable moment throughout the years have been many things.I really love when my students that I have already taught email or call me and tell me how much they appreciate being in my class when they where in middle school. It makes me feel good to know they are doing well. I have an ongoing relationship with Lawrence Technological University Stem lab. They provided several hands on lessons for my students during the school year. As well as the University of Michigan and Cranbrook.

Who is your favorite NHL® player and why?

Givani Smith

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

The students were resistant at first because it is Hockey, but now they see how it relates to lessons in the class and they like that part of it.

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

I would like to be the goalie. Being a goalie to me they have biggest impact to prevent the other team from scoring.
