Welcome! If you are on this page, it's because I have your student for either French or Spanish. The pleasure is mine.

My Education and Professional Background

I completed my Bachelor's in Secondary Education: French (Spanish minor) in 1999. I completed my Master's in Curriculum and Instruction (Bilingual Education) in 2001. Finally, I completed my Ph.D. in Curriculum and Instruction (Curriculum and Cultural Studies) in 2008. All three degrees are from ASU. I started teaching for the CUSD in 1999. I started my career at AJHS (6 years), then moved to BHS (3 years), and found my home at CHS ever since. Go Wolves!!!

My Educational Philosophy

I believe that we are a learning community whereby I am both teacher-student and my students are simultaneously students-teachers. We have a lot to learn about ourselves and each other and our language of study will serve as the vehicle necessary to cultivate our own gardens (Voltaire).
