    I'm delighted to be a part of Casteel High School and working in the prestigious CUSD. In addition to teaching history I also assist with coaching Girls Soccer here at our school.

    My Education and Professional Background

    • Master of Education and Arizona Certification in Secondary Education through Arizona State University.
    • Highly qualified teacher status for Social Science and history at both middle and high school levels.

    My Educational Philosophy

    Each teaching day will aim to be purposeful, professional, and personable as students experience energy, enthusiasm, and empathy in the classroom. I will associate effort with success and historical accuracy with optimism as I seek to facilitate a collaborative approach with all students to foster participation. I feel that for students to become functioning members of society and to successfully navigate their way in life, it is important to reassure them that staying close to custom, history, and experience will see them through.
