Welcome to an amazing year at Basha High! It is my goal and pleasure to foster an appreciation of literature while aiding in the improvement of students' critical thinking and writing skills. This is my seventh year as a Basha Bear educator and my 13th year teaching high school English. I am also the adviser for the BHS National Honor Society chapter, and I hope to get to know you well!

My Education and Professional Background

My education background includes an undergraduate degree in Business Administration, a Master's degree in Organizational Management, and certification as a secondary AZ English teacher.

My Educational Philosophy

Teach them well and let them lead the way... Every classroom presents a unique community of learners that varies not only in abilities, but also in learning styles. My role as a teacher is to share with students the tools with which to cultivate their own gardens of knowledge. To accomplish this goal, I will teach to the needs of each student so that all learners can feel capable and successful. I will present curriculum that involves the interests of the students and makes learning relevant to life. I will incorporate themes, integrated units, projects, group work, and individual work in order to make students active learners. Finally, I will tie learning into the world community to help students become caring and active members of society.
