The opportunity to teach at Santan Junior High is an honor. I do not take this responsibility lightly as it is a springboard for our 7th and 8th graders into high school.

My Education and Professional Background

I am originally from a small Michigan town called Schoolcraft where I graduated from High School in 1994. After working in the automotive industry for roughly 8 years, I decided to pursue other potential career options. A move to Tucson, Arizona yielded an undergraduate degree from the University of Arizona with a Bachelors in History. After working for the Pima County Health Department as a school health coordinator, I wanted to utilize my undergraduate knowledge and passion of working alongside intellectually developing students. In May 2019, I completed The Arizona State University's Mary Lou Fulton Teacher's College Certification Program. In addition to student teaching at Santan 2019, I am now ready and equipped to teach our middle school students at this amazing school.
