Chris comes to us from Groves High School in Birmingham, Michigan (which is in Beverly Hills, Michigan). At Groves she taught at various times Algebra, Geometry, Conceptual Physics, Honors Physics, AP Physics 1 and AP Physics C (both Mechanics and Electricity and Magnetism) for the past 15 years. Chris has had lots of other jobs over the course of her life, in addition to teaching Physics. She’s been a framer of paintings, a file clerk, a Godiva chocolates employee, a cashier and she worked at a maternity clothing store for 5 years. Chris has also been the faculty advisor for the Amnesty International Club and Animal Rights at Groves High School.
Chris grew up in the suburbs of Detroit and went to a small public high school then got a BS in Physics and Education from Eastern Michigan University in Ypsilanti, Michigan. She also earned a Masters Degree in Science Education. She was attracted to PCS because of the outstanding academics and the high expectations for students in a public high school setting. She was particularly impressed by the AP Biology requirement for graduation.
In her free time Chris likes to take nature hikes, listen to live music, and play with her cats Axel and Panther. She enjoys books by Brian Greene and Ira Flatow and she’s passionate about animal rescue.
PCS students can expect a dedicated, engaging teacher who loves to help students through the ups and downs of physics and mathematics so that they are enlightened!
