My Education and Professional Background

I'm an ASU Grad! Earned my initial teaching degree as a Sun Devil! My Master's was earned through NAU and I've been teaching since 1997! I was an Education Director for the University of Phoenix as well as a faculty member from 2010 until 2017.

My Educational Philosophy

I am originally from Boston, Massachusetts, but moved around a lot as my father was in the Air Force. We lived upstate in New York, North Carolina, Florida, The Philippine Islands, North Dakota, Arizona, and Texas! I wrapped up my high school years here in Chandler at Chandler High! I joined the military in 1985 as a firefighter, got out in 1989 and started working in radio. I held many positions in radio including on-air talent, production, and promotions. At some point, in the mid-90s, I decided to go back to school (ASU), and learned how to be a teacher! I student-taught at Weinberg Elementary back in 1997 and have been teaching ever since! This includes at the elementary level as well as in Higher Learning at University of Phoenix! I love to teach! I love to see my students succeed and to nurture the love for learning!
