  • I'm excited to be part of the team here at Northwest High, for my fourth year.  I hold an undergraduate degree and Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Durham, UK, then moved to UCLA to work as a post-doctoral research assistant in the department of materials science and engineering.  I've taught Community College, private high school and most recently have been at Northern Guilford High School for five years, where I was teacher of the year and recipient of a national Regeneron (formerly Intel) Teacher of Merit Award. I live in Oak Ridge with my husband and three teenagers - all at Northwest High School this year, in 9th, 11th and 12th grade!
