Welcome Pumas! It is a pleasure to have you in my class this year. Please use this website throughout the year. I will post important course information as needed. Let's have a wonderful year!

My Education and Professional Background

I started teaching in 2001 and joined the Chandler Unified School District in 2005. I graduated from Arizona State University with a BA in Political Science and a Minor in History (Go Devils!). Later, I received a M.Ed. in Education from Texas State University.

My Educational Philosophy

The purpose of education is to learn to be satiated with life. I believe that education should bring exceptional experiences that are so full of wonder and connectedness that students learn to live lives that are truly satisfied (Delpit 2006).
