Biography

I was born on Long Island, New York, moved  to Mesa, Arizona in 1976 and graduated from Mountain View High School in 1979. I studied Music Theater at A.S.U., Theater at M.C.C. and N.A.U., and received my B.A. in Theater Education from Ottawa University in 1995. I received my masters in Secondary Curriculum and Instruction.  I taught at the Academy of Destiny Preparatory in Phoenix in 1999, where I taught all subjects except math and science for ninth and tenth graders. In 2000, I taught drama and English at Eagle's Aerie Charter School for first through eighth graders. I moved to the Mesa Public Schools in 2007 where I taught 7th grade English at Carson Jr. High. I returned to my Alma Mater the fall of 2011 and have enjoyed teaching freshmen and sophomores.  I am the adviser for American Teenage Poets (ATP) the spoken word poetry group.

I have one daughter. I love singing, theater, and traveling.
