My Education and Professional Background

This year will be my 22nd year in education and I am proud to be joining the ACP family. I have a bachelor's degree in English with a minor in Spanish and a master's degree in secondary education curriculum and instruction with an emphasis in English education, both from Arizona State University. In addition, I hold a doctoral degree in K-12 educational leadership from Northern Arizona University. In addition to teaching, I have also been a campus and district level administrator.

My Educational Philosophy

As an English teacher, my goal is to prepare students with the literacy skills they need to be successful in college and the workplace. My goal is to challenge students to discover their own uniqueness as writers and scholars. I have high expectations for learning and am confident that within a supportive community of learners, all students can be successful in rigorous courses. I believe the partnership between home and the classroom is paramount, and I look forward to working with all of our ACP families to ensure the success of our students.
