Welcome!!! I am the eighth grade strategies teacher, and co-teach with Ms. Wiese and Ms. Hillebrand in language arts and math. I was born and raised in Arizona. In my free time I enjoys hiking, reading, traveling, cheering on my favorite teams, namely, the Diamondbacks, Phoenix Suns and Arizona Cardinals, and spending time with my loved ones.

My Education and Professional Background

My Educational Philosophy

A love of working with young people and watching students grow has led me to a career in teaching. My plan was to teach at the elementary level, but after spending a short time with junior high students as a para-educator, I knew these were the students that I wanted to work with. I strive in making my classroom a safe, exciting and welcoming environment to learn. If you have any questions or need to schedule an appointment, please don't hesitate to contact me, preferably through email.
