I am very excited to be your English teacher this year! We will be reading novels and plays, exploring writing techniques and more. I was born and raised in Arizona and I graduated from the University of Arizona (go cats!), with my BA in English and my MEd in Secondary Education. When I'm not in a classroom, I enjoy hiking, visiting the lake, and spending time with family. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me. I look forward to working with you this year!
My Education and Professional Background
I attended the University of Arizona to obtain my B.A. in English and minor in Educational Psychology. I then continued my education at the University of Arizona where I completed my Masters in Secondary Education. I have been teaching English at Perry High School for three years.
My Educational Philosophy
I believe all students have their own definition of success. Therefore, in order to help every student succeed, instructors must teach lessons that appeal to every student. Not every lesson must appeal to every student at the same time, but these lessons should be connected to students with different backgrounds, interests and goals. Students should be able to apply this knowledge to 'real life' after high school, and feel as though his or her ideal future is represented in a positive light.
