My Education and Professional Background

I graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Arizona in 1991 with a Bachelor's in English and Secondary Education, then moved to Wisconsin where I taught 9th-12th grade literature and composition classes for eight years. In 1999, I completed my Master's degree in Education from Aurora University before moving back to Arizona and becoming part of the Hamilton team. Literature and world history are my passions, and I am thrilled to have had the opportunity to teach both through my English curriculum and through coaching and teaching Academic Decathlon.

My Educational Philosophy

Students learn best in a dynamic setting where they feel accepted and valued. I love teaching; I love the energy of a classroom where students are challenged to become strong writers, adept readers, and involved members of a learning community.
