Welcome to CHS! This will be another exciting year of Government and World History

My Education and Professional Background

I started teaching at CHS in January 2013. I earned my Bachelor's Degree form ASU in December 2012. My degree is in Secondary Education/History(Summa Cum Laude). I am certified by the State of Arizona to teach Government, World History, U.S. History and Middle Schools Social Studies. I am also the JV Boy's Soccer Head Coach and the JV Softball Head Coach. I was born and raised in Tempe, Arizona. Graduated from Tempe High School. Before teaching and finishing college I was a licensed barber for 12 years. I still live in Tempe and have one daughter who attends school in the Kyrene school district. We love to watch sports, play sports, ride bikes, watch our favorite shows and create Lego sets together.

My Educational Philosophy

I believe ALL students have the ability to learn, it's a matter of finding the engine to drive them there. Respect is a two way street- you must give it to get it.
