Wheatland's participation in the Gateway to Technology Program is an exciting way to get students involved in engineering, science, and math. With units such as Design and Modeling, Automation and Robotics, Energy and the Environment, Magic of Electrons, Science of Technology, and Flight and Space, all students get hands on experience in computer aided design, the design process, simulation software, robotics, and many other topics. Its an invigorating curriculum, and I can't wait to get started!
My educational background includes a Bachelors of Arts in Chemistry from Carthage College. I minored in Secondary Education (Grades 6-12), Spanish, and Broad-field Science. Previous teaching experience includes 9-Lab Science (a mixture of chemistry and physics) and Chemistry in the Community for 11th and 12th grade at Washington Park High School in Racine and 8th grade science at Mahone Middle School in Kenosha.
When I’m not at school, my hobbies include spending time with my family, playing with my dog, Clover, scrapbooking, quilting, and reading. I also love to travel, hike, canoe, and camp. As children, my sister and I made a goal to see every National Park in the U.S. and it’s a pastime that is always cherished.
