Personal Information:
I am married and we have 4 children ages 23, 21, and two 17 year olds (Go, Red Mountain!). 

I love teaching history and I try to make it enjoyable and interesting for my students.  I also recognize the value of teaching newly-incoming 7th graders organization, critical thinking, and test-taking skills.

In my spare time, I enjoy playing games with my family and 2 dogs, hiking, reading, camping, running, lifting weights, and scrapbooking.
