Do you see your child as a scientist? A politician? A passionate historian? A fact-checker? I do! Let's learn about ancient civilizations and the religions and cultures that shaped our world.

My Education and Professional Background

I graduated from Lake Washington High School in 2000. I went to Arizona State University and was on the diving team and competed on the 1M, 3M springboard and 10M platform. While earning my degree in Education, I also was a Student Orientation Leader, a Resident Assistant, was the elected official for the College of Education for ASU's Student Government and a volunteer diving instructor for the youth Sun Devil Diving program. I graduated from ASU in December of 2004. January 2005 I was hired at Goodman Elementary School, and worked at that site until 2016. I earned my MBA from Northern Arizona University in 2010. The Technology Integration Position became available in the school year of 2017 and I was hired as a travel teacher at Basha Elementary School and CTA-Independence. I worked three years as a travel teacher, and then moved back into the general education classroom as a 6th grade social science teacher.

My Educational Philosophy

I believe in your child and high expectations. I believe in the power of yet. I believe in bad days and better tomorrows. I believe in hard questions and not always knowing the answers.
