Biography

I am a graduate of Arizona State University. I earned my Bachelors of Science in Physics and my Masters Degree in Secondary Education. I am currently highly qualified to teach general science, physics, and mathematics. This is my second year as a Mountain View Toro, but my third year teaching, which is rather exciting! Previously, I taught 7th grade science at Fremont Junior High during my first year.

I started a graduate program at ASU for physics, but found that the lab setting and conducting research did not suit me. Working with students during office hours led me down a path that would integrate that sense of helping people create their own understanding of a topic and my love of science. This lead me to enroll in the iTeachAZ Teacher Education for Arizona Math and Science (TEAMS) program at Arizona State University, and in the spring of 2016, I recieved my Master of Education in Secondary Education.

I am very excited to be a part of this wonderful community. We are known for a long standing tradition of excellence, I get to continue that tradition. It is my pleasure, and I am thankful, that I get to come to work each morning and help teach some of the brightest and most driven students in the valley.

My interests include, but are not limited to: reading (everything fantasy and quite a few things that are not), playing collectible trading card games, tabletop role-playing games, swimming, amateur astronomy,  and miscellaneous physics gizmos.
