"Attitude…is more important than facts…the past, education, money, circumstances, failure, successes, than what other people think or say or do….We cannot change our past...we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you...we are in charge of our Attitudes."
-- Charles R. Swindoll

Welcome to Psychology! I am so excited that you have chosen to learn about the mind and body. I am extremely passionate about the subject and I love working with kids, so teaching high school psychology is a perfect fit for me. I know that this is going to be another great year!

My Educational Philosophy

A great education is one that promotes enthusiasm for the content through active engagement in discussions and activities. The more that students interact with the content, the more that they are able to apply what they are learning to the real world so that they better understand themselves and the world in which we live.
