    I am a science teacher at Paw Paw High School. I teach Essential Chemistry and Physics and Physics. I grew up near Albany, New York and really loved science in high school. I majored in physics at Wesleyan University in Connecticut, but also studied Japanese on the side and even spend 9 months on a study abroad program in Kyoto, Japan. After graduating from Wesleyan, I returned to Japan to work as an assistant language teacher in Nagasaki Prefecture for three years. During that time, I worked on my Japanese speaking skills, competed on a festival-style dance team, and learned tea ceremony. I returned to the US and completed a masters degree in teacher science from New York University.
