Hello! I am so excited to be joining the Mesa Academy family. I am thrilled to be teaching the fascinating courses of 6th and 8th grade social studies!
I have taught social studies in Arizona public schools for the past 6 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 teaching English Language Acquisition to Adult learners.
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 board and card games, learn about other cultures, travel, read, do crafts, work out, hike, cook, play guitar and listen to music.
I am looking forward to an amazing year!!!
