Welcome to my page! I teach Biology to freshman, Sustainable Design and Engineering to sophomores, and Anatomy and Physiology to juniors and seniors. I was a research scientist and clinical microbiologist before I began teaching biology. I have worked at Union County Vocational Technical High School since 2003. I earned my bachelor’s from the University of Delaware and my graduate degree in Molecular biology from Rutgers University. I love teaching.

If you are visiting for AFTER YOU TIE DYE:
-Keep the bag tightly closed so as to keep the shirt moist. BE PATIENT!!
-Let the dyes react completely by allowing them to sit undisturbed for 24 hours.
-After 24 hours, remove the shirt from the bag (BE CAREFUL NOT TO TOUCH IT TO OTHER CLOTHES/FABRICS!!) and rinse it with warm water until two things happen 1) the water runs clear with no color showing up, and 2) the shirt no longer feels slippery.
-Wash the shirt in a washing machine set on HOT with the dish detergent (Joy, Dawn, or Ivory—only a tablespoon!).
-Dry the shirt on the hottest dryer setting.
-Once the shirt is completely dry, it is safe to wear and to wash again later with dark colors!!
