"The joys of adventure, the delight in the beauty of the world, the intensities of triumph and defeat, the self-questionings and self-realizations, the pangs of love and hate—indeed, as Henry James has said, ‘all life, all feeling, all observation, all vision’—these are the province of literature."
-- Louise M. Rosenblatt

My Education and Professional Background

I’m an Arizona native and have been teaching at Chandler High since 2008. I love the culture and climate at CHS, and I’m proud to work at a school and for a district that values and promotes the inquiry and open-mindedness of both their students and staff. I decided to become an English educator when I realized that teaching would combine two of my favorite things: talking to people and reading. The rest is (as the cliché goes) history, and I graduated from ASU with a Bachelor of Arts in Secondary Education and a Master of Arts in English Education. I am passionate about embracing and fostering new perspectives and knowledges, and I’m honored to have the opportunity to do so alongside my students.

My Educational Philosophy

Years in the classroom have taught me that students learn most when they’re knowledgably guided. Questions teach more than answers, and they further a student’s capacity to critically think. In addition, the ability to manipulate language is the most powerful tool available to shape and challenge our world, and the ability to analytically evaluate and construct the texts that dominate it affords students the democratic opportunity to shape their global community. Therefore, my fundamental charge as an educator is to ensure the critical literacies of my students.
