|"As long as we continue to worship grades over learning, scores over intellectual bravery and testable facts over application of knowledge, kids will never believe us when we tell them learning is valuable in and of itself."|

Hello! I was born and raised in Michigan, and graduated from Michigan State University in 1998. (GO SPARTANS!) Prior to moving to Arizona in 2006, I taught in Walled Lake, Michigan for 7 years. I have been teaching in Chandler Unified School District since I moved here. I taught at Chandler High from 2006 to 2017, and now I am proud to be a part of the CCHS Colts Family! During my teaching career, I have taught everything from Algebra I to Honors Pre-Calculus.
My Education and Professional Background
I have a Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics, and a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Teaching. Both of my degrees were earned at Michigan State University. I began teaching in 1999. I am Dual Enrollment certified so that students can earn college credit while taking my course in high school.
My Educational Philosophy
I believe that struggling to learn new knowledge is good. It teaches us to work hard and persevere. Learning never stops. Making mistakes is part of learning.
