"Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
-- Mark Twain

My Education and Professional Background

I have taught English (all levels), drama, stagecraft, and speech and debate. I currently teach communication courses at Arizona State University in the evenings. My teaching certification also includes a drama and CTE endorsement. I have a bachelors in communication, a masters in education, and a masters in theatre design.

My Educational Philosophy

Education is a social process. Education is growth. Education is not preparation for life. Education is life itself. -John Dewey
