We've got a strong group of teachers on the 8C team, and students are sure to flourish with and gain from our varying teaching styles and techniques. I've taught at the junior high level for over a decade with a few years of high school teaching prior.

I spend all of my free time with those whom I love. I strive to always work on being a better person, to never lose sight of my priorities, and to never forget for a single second how truly fortunate I am in this life!!

My Education and Professional Background

I received my Bachelor's and Master's degrees from NAU in beautiful Flagstaff, where I was lucky enough to live for a number of years.

My Educational Philosophy

As an educator, I would like all of my students to look back on their academic careers feeling that they learned while they had some fun, and that they are better people.
