Hello SJHS families! I am so excited to be a guidance counselor at Santan Junior High! I am passionate about working with children, identifying student needs, and developing programming to ensure student success. I look forward to supporting students, staff, and families. Please contact me for assistance if you ever have any questions or concerns.

My Education and Professional Background

I received a BA in Educational Studies from University of Delaware, an Elementary Teaching Degree from Centenary College, and a Master's Degree in Educational Counseling from Ottawa University. I began teaching in California in 1997, then relocated to Arizona, where I taught in Chandler 2006-2019. I am eager to begin my counseling career!

My Educational Philosophy

I am here to support students and their families regarding each student's academic and social/emotional development. I believe that all students have the ability to be successful academically, socially, and emotionally. They deserve to feel safe, accepted, and be treated with equity. I will promote kindness, acceptance, and perseverance. I hope to empower students to take advantage of every opportunity for personal and academic growth.
