    Welcome to 7th and 8th Grade Social Studies!

    My Education and Professional Background

    • M.B.A. in International Business, Western International University
    • B.S. in Management Systems, Arizona State University

    In 2020, I made the transition from the business world to teaching. My first position was at Santan Junior High School where I taught 8th Grade Social Studies. Then, I worked at Casteel High School teaching 8th Grade ELA (English Language Arts). Now, I will be teaching 7th and 8th Grade Social Studies at Elite Performance Academy.  I love it!

    My Educational Philosophy

    As a junior high social studies teacher, my philosophy is to create a learning environment that's both informative and exciting. I believe students thrive when engaged, so I use various teaching techniques to keep things interesting. From lively discussions to interactive projects and immersive simulations, I bring the content to life and connect it to real-world experiences. By nurturing curiosity, critical thinking, and empathy, I empower students to shape our future. Let's embark on this adventure of discovery together!
