Welcome to 9th grade English at Chandler High School! Teaching is one of the most rewarding jobs a person can have. There is nothing more satisfying than empowering students with the skills and resources to succeed within the classroom and beyond. I look forward to creating a positive and successful learning environment with all of the students.

My Education and Professional Background

Originally from Washington, I was born and raised in a small town about 60 miles north of Seattle (Mount Vernon). I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication Studies at Portland State University in Oregon. I attended college on a softball and academic scholarship and recognize the importance of both academic and extracurricular activities. After graduating college, I moved to Arizona and earned a Master's degree in Secondary Education at Arizona State University. I first started working at Chandler High in 2014. Prior to arriving at Chandler High, I had the opportunity to work at the middle school level for several years.

My Educational Philosophy

I believe that with the right amount of support and encouragement, every student can be successful. As a teacher, I promise to make every decision based on what is best for students. In doing so, I will be relentless in ensuring that you become proficient in our 9th grade College & Career Readiness Standards (Reading, Writing, Speaking & Listening). To help you become proficient, I will encourage and support you every single day to be successful. Because I understand learning is a process, I will allow you the opportunity to learn from your mistakes to deepen your understanding and strengthen your knowledge.
