Hello! I am so excited to be returning for my second year at Mesa Academy. What a year we had! I am ready for a return to a less eventful school year and can't wait to focus on the fascinating worlds of 6th and 8th grade Social Studies!
I have taught social studies in Arizona public schools for the past 8 years including: US History, World History and AP World History at both the middle school and high school levels. I have also trained adults in technical and soft skills in academic and public libraries, specialty pharmacy and state agencies. I currently work part time at Rio Salado as an Instructional Designer in the English Language Acquisition to Adult learners programs.
I grew up in Canada and studied in a French immersion program throughout elementary and high school. I have a BA in History from the University of New Brunswick, a Post-Bac in Secondary Education from Rio Salado Community College and an MA in Curriculum and Instruction with a focus in English Language Learners from ASU.
When I am not in the classroom I enjoy spending as much time with my family as possible. I have two adult children with families of their own and an adorable grand-daughter. I love to play trivia and other games, learn about other cultures, travel, read, work out, hike, cook, play guitar and listen to music.
I am looking forward to an amazing year!!!
