A bit about me: 
I have been teaching Biology and AP Biology at Haverford High School since 2007. I have a B.S. in Biology from Spring Hill College and a Ph.D. in Biochemistry from the University of Alabama at Birmingham.  I spent 12 years as a molecular biologist doing biomedical research, most recently as a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Pennsylvania, before becoming a teacher.  I completed my teaching certification at St. Joseph's University. My husband Curtis is also a scientist.  We have 2 children who recently graduated from the Haverford School District, and are currently happy college students.  When we're not working, learning, reading and talking science, we play ultimate frisbee and practice yoga.
PS: 2020-2021 is the year to Fear Less!   ; )
