Tutoring hours: After school Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 3:50 to 4:30.


I was raised here in Mesa and graduated from Dobson High School. I headed north to Flagstaff for my higher education at NAU, majoring in history education, where my experiences reinforced that teaching was the career for me. I graduated magna cum laude with honors in December 2013. I started substituting the next school year, and got my foot in the door, so to speak, as a long-term substitute at Taylor for the 4th quarter of 2014/2015. I was then hired on for the next year.

After a few years at Taylor, I've switched to Kino, where I'm continuing to grow as an educator. I'm here now for a second year, kept here by the wonderful espirit de corps of my colleagues and administration.


My Work at Kino

For those whose students are new to my class, I encourage you to view the presentation I give at parent night at the beginning of the semester. 

I teach six hours of seventh-grade social studies, which emphasizes American history and geography.

I'm also the head NAL coach at Kino! The National Academic League is an extracurricular activity that is something like a quiz show. I've been co-coach for two years already (one at Taylor, one at Kino), and I'm pumped for this season! Note that NAL games may interfere with the tutoring times above.
