Welcome!

Welcome to my CHS website! I am so excited to join the Chandler High School family this year. Students, I look forward to getting to know you this year and expanding our knowledge and beliefs through our studies. Parents/Guardians, welcome to my classroom as well, and please feel free to contact me with any questions/concerns.

My Education and Professional Background

I was born in small-town Ohio and then moved to Scottsdale, Arizona during middle school. After I got used to the heat, I continued on with my education and graduated from Coronado High School. I then decided to head to the mountains and go to Northern Arizona University. I graduated from NAU with a Bachelor of Science in secondary English education and a minor in journalism. Since then, I have taught English at the middle school and high school levels.

My Educational Philosophy

I believe that education is essential in discovering one's sense of self and beliefs about the world. As an individual, I believe learning should be a life-long endeavor. And, as a teacher, I hope to instill that same belief into my students. Through learning, we are able to discover our passions, our values, and more, while also opening our minds and learning to listen to others' ideas as well. In addition, learning opens up doors to opportunities for our futures. I believe every student is capable of learning and achieving their dreams as long as they are willing to try and do their best daily.
