I love teaching and I love my students more. I work in the far-reaches of Eastern Oregon. Our school is unique in that there are 7 rural 1 and 2 room schools that filter into Crane Union High School where I teach; many living in a dormitory throughout the week. Due to that arrangement, I frequently have gaps in science knowledge and in the student's ability to think critically. I want to give the best opportunities for these kids, when they graduate, to "compete" with other college kids in becoming successful in their college studies and future careers. Many of my students have gone on to study in STEM fields. I want to give them the best opportunities!
