Welcome Bears! I look forward to seeing you grow as readers, writers, thinkers, and collaborators. Do your best every day. Be present in the moment. Be the best version of yourself.

My Education and Professional Background

This will be my 25th year teaching. I have a Bachelor's from ASU and a Master's from NAU. I have taught all levels of secondary ELA from 7th grade reading to AP senior literature.

My Educational Philosophy

I believe that literacy is one of the most important skills for the unpredictable, ever-changing world. If you know how to read and write critically and work with others collaboratively, you will always be one step ahead of the game.
