I am a product of Mesa Public Schools. I went to elementary thru 12th grade in Mesa Schools and graduated from Red Mountain High School. From there I attended Northern Arizona University where I earned my Bachelors of Science in History.
After college, I worked at a mom and pop banner and display company until 2011, when I began working at Skyline High School in the media center. Working in the media center was a very rewarding experience that allowed me to interact with and assist high school students on a regular basis. I went back to school and earned my Masters in Education from the University of Phoenix and graduated in November 2014.
This is my 7th year at Mesa. In this time, I've taught World History, American History, and 9th grade AVID. This will be my 3rd year co-coaching We the People. We the People is a higher level class that takes a deeper look at the formation of our government, the U.S. Constitution, and how it all applies to today in the United States.
When I am not at school, grading papers or planning for the next classes, you can find me spending time with family, friends or road tripping to Disneyland. I love to travel, read (biography's and fiction), watch movies (Harry Potter, Rom Coms, & Disney), and hang out with my nieces and nephew.
My goal is to help and encourage students achieve their highest potential in every aspect of their lives.
