I am in my 27th year of teaching and have my National Board Certification in EA Science. Currently I teach Design and Engineering and Ontroduction to Engineering g 7th and 8th graders at Pacific Middle School in the Highline School District. Several years ago, I won the Highline Schools Foundation $10,000 Impact Grant which focused on bringing the Maker world to Pacific's five feeder schools. One of the sources of pride for our school and district is the fact we have won the Future City Regional Competition three years and represented Washington State in Washington DC. We were ranked 10th Nationally.
