My Education and Professional Background

I began teaching at Casteel in 2015. Going into my 4th year teaching, I will be teaching Technical Theatre as well as Honors 8th Grade Language Arts. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre Arts and English Literature from Marquette University as well as a Master of Arts in Teaching Secondary Gifted Education from the University of Southern California. I have lived in Arizona since the beginning of 2014. Before moving here, I was working as a restaurant manager as well as designing scenery for local theaters.

My Educational Philosophy

The number one goal in my classroom is student learning. In order to achieve this, it is necessary to allow students to explore and create knowledge independently and collaboratively. In my classes, students will apply hands-on skills in order to further their mastery. Students will learn new and exciting things both in Language Arts and Technical Theatre.
