Southern has been a wonderful home for me these past 10 years. I have been welcomed and honored to work with such wonderful students. I have seen many of them grow to become wonderful, successful adults and parents to their own children. In the future, I hope to be fortunate enough to teach the next generation of science students. I have been the Life Science teacher for the past 10 years since 2010. I am currently responsible for teaching all of the 7th-grade students in Science about basic chemistry and earth science. I am fortunate to be able to teach all of those students again when they reach 10th grade for Biology. After 10th grade year, students can optionally take my Senior Anatomy & Physiology class about all things related to the human body. A second optional class I offer for students is a course in Physics. This math-based course helps students prepare for how the world works and an explanation of how it works and relates to many mathematical concepts. Outside of academic responsibilities, I am currently in charge of the Student Council(for the second year) including selecting Homecoming royalty and putting on the Homecoming dance. The student council also does an annual Valentine's Day fundraiser. I have been in charge of the Senior High Quiz Bowl for the past 9 years and we have been fortunate enough to reach the state competition 2 of the 5 years we have competed in the competition. I have also been fortunate enough to have been a part of Senior Scholarship Interview Day for the previous 2 years.
