This is my first year at Dobson High School. I will be teaching Algebra 2 and College Algebra/Trigonometry.

I have been in education for 24 years. I taught 18 years in high school, 3 years in middle school, and was a District Math Specialist for 3 years. I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in math education from Indiana University, a Master's degree from Walden University, and an Educational Specialist degree from Walden University. I have served on many Arizona state committees for mathematics assessments and standards, am a national consultant for state standards and high stakes assessments and am a content reviewer for the nationally recognized Ed. Reports (which reviews and consults textbook companies on content). I am married to an ELA teacher, we have a wonderful family of two daughters and one pug mix dog.

The only thing that stands besides my passion for my family and teaching is my obsession for Star Wars. I became a fan in 1977 with the release of the "first" movie.
