kathy.jpg I have been teaching at Winneconne High School since 2005. I teach mostly the upper level biology classes, but I have also taught the Environmental Biology class and sophomore biology class. Before coming to Winneconne I taught for 7 years at Neenah High School as a Standard Biology, Advanced Biology, and Environmental Biology teacher.

My degree is from UW- Madison in Biological Aspects of Conservation. I worked for the DNR for a few years in fish management and then went to UW-Green Bay where I received my teaching license in Biology, Chemistry, and Broadfield Science. I absolutely love my teaching job and can't imagine doing anything else. I hope that my students enjoy my classes and yet are challenged.

One of my jobs at Winneconne High School involves coordinating a fall and spring blood drive. Our school has won the Platinum award for the last 6 years. Please feel free to sign-up for upcoming blood drives at www.save3lives.org look for the Winneconne High School Blood drive and help us out!

I am also very active in several science organizations and initiatives. I often present at the WSST's (Wisconsin Society of Science Teachers) conference, and am currently as the WSST District 6 Director and the President Elect. I have been involved as a planner and staffer of Science Futures and the Environmental Science Teacher Network Summit. I was honored to be awarded the 2008 Outstanding Biology Teacher Award from the NABT (National Association of Biology Teachers).

Outside of school I enjoy doing many activities with my family. I also enjoy going to movies, making beaded jewelry, and nature photography.
