My Education and Professional Background
BS Molecular Biosciences and Biotechnology Arizona State University, Master’s Degree in Education from Northcentral University, Teacher Certification Rio Salado College
My Educational Philosophy
I believe every student has unlimited potential. High school is the last chance for developing citizens to receive the liberal education necessary to discover their true talents and interests. I, and your other teachers, assume the role of facilitator in this journey. I strive to create an environment where you are exposed to challenging concepts that will enrich your lives as well as make you a more competent person. My role in your education is to create the environment where you can learn and succeed, facilitating your development. The student's job is to put forth the effort required to learn and succeed. The journey of becoming educated is not easy; it shouldn't be. After all, nothing worth having is ever easy. Education is, however, necessary.
