HI! (that's an actual x-ray of my hand over there!)  >>>
September 2019 starts my tenth year teaching at Macopin. Before I became a middle school science teacher, I worked in the Franklin Lakes elementary schools as their district Discovery teacher (similiar to Learning Unlimited here in WM) for one year, and before that I worked at Somerset County Park Commission as an environmental educator for 5 years (where I taught infants>>adults about nature and science, and ran a science summer camp for 7-9 year olds), and before that I worked at CENTRAL PARK ZOO!! (so cool) as a Zoo Educator, and before that I worked at Greenburgh Nature Center as Nature Center Intern, and before that I worked at the Conservancy of Southwest Florida as Museum/Animal Care Intern. 
I've traveled the East Coast trying all sorts of things, and now I have settled here at Macopin School in 2010.
I also am the volunteer goalie coach for GIRLS FIELD HOCKEY at West Milford High School! Go Highlanders!

For fun outside of school, I played ROLLER DERBY for the Garden State Rollergirls  (www.gardenstaterollergirls.com) for 7 years before retiring in Spring '14. I like to hike, camp, and bake, and use power tools to both fix and break things.  I love to longboard and stand-up paddleboard on weekends. I LOVE to travel and explore: I got my scuba diving certification in summer 2017 in the Florida Keys. I visited Japan (Tokyo) and Thailand (Bangkok) in summer 2018, Austin, TX in Spring 2017, and Seattle, WA during Spring 2016.


I got married to a really cool dude with an EPIC beard in July 2019: 
You can officially call us "The BozeBeards."

Other fun things: I have three cats named Fern, Gabe and Neko. I have a weakness for chocolate chip cookies and corny science jokes. I have named all the cars I've owned and have a very extensive collection of sneakers. I also have a VERY hard time sitting still!

Finally, here are some pictures of our cats, Neko, Gabe, and Fern.

In loving memory of India, who crossed the rainbow bridge May 2019:This is India. She usually disapproves.
