Biography

I teach seniors and DE (Dual Enrollment) Comp 101 & 102.  Red Mountain logo with lionThe RMHS students are a lively, bright & caring bunch & I enjoy their inquisitive nature & humor.  I believe students need to feel comfortable in class & learning needs to be relevant to students in order to be meaningful.

English is a discipline which requires students to clarify their thinking, in order to write in a clear & concise manner.  The skills developed in English class are utilized across content areas & will improve all aspects of communication for students.

Ideally students will discover a piece of literature which resonates with them and may serve as a portal to the joys of reading.
