I was raised in Clinton, Iowa, and graduated from Clinton High School. I earned my BA in English from the University of Iowa (I will always be a Hawkeye at heart) although I also have an M.Ed. from NAU.
I've been a teacher for Mesa Public Schools since 1989, first at Carson Junior High and then at Hendrix. I transferred to Dobson in 1999 and have been a Mustang ever since.
