    About Me

    Welcome to 8th grade, Firebirds! I am thrilled to be joining you this year. Although this is my second year at Willis Junior High School, this is my 7th year teaching. My previous experience includes teaching 11th grade American Literature and 7th-12th grade English Language Learners. I was born and raised in Chandler, so it feels great to be where I consider home. After graduating from Chandler High School, I attended Chandler-Gilbert Community College and eventually graduated from Arizona State University with my B.A. in Secondary Education-English. Last year, I also graduated from Northern Arizona University with my M.Ed. in Multicultural/Bilingual Education with an emphasis in English as a Second Language.
    About 8th Grade Language Arts:
    This year, we will continue to develop your skills in the English language. Some of you might say, "But I already speak English!" Our language is rich and expansive; I hope to share that knowledge with you and help you grow as readers, writers, and speakers. Ultimately, my goal is to make sure I prepare the students for high school.
