As a science teacher, I am excited about Monday’s solar eclipse. Space and our exploration of the moon, sun, and stars has fascinated me from a very young age. In my courses I always try to elicit a similar excitement for my students. The eclipse gives many people in the US a chance to witness something that rarely happens over the main portion of the nation. In fact, 1918 was the last time we experienced such an eclipse. I have designed a shirt and hoodie to help people remember that they were a part of this celestial phenomenon.

I recently completed my PhD in Education (Curriculum and Instruction) at the University of Wyoming. I have published multiple articles in peer reviewed journals and have a book chapter coming early next year. I aim to explore issues of privilege and equity of education, especially as they pertain to STEM education.
