•   Yoda learn

     I am happy to be here at CCHS.  I have been teaching for over 22 years, from middle school to college level. I have lived in Eastern NC/VA all my life. I have taught all the sciences at the high school level. I got my Bachelor's of Science from Chowan University in Murfreesboro, NC and my Master's of Science from Elizabeth City State University. I love all aspects of science. My passions range from wanting to chase tornadoes to looking at cancer cells under the microscope. I hope that we have a great year face to face. I have missed students in the classroom as well as doing real labs.  I also teach at Chowan University,  Human Anatomy and Physiogy lecture and lab, Bio 101 lab, and several educational courses.
