I was raised here in Mesa and graduated from Dobson High School. I headed north to Flagstaff for my higher education at NAU, majoring in history education, where my experiences reinforced that teaching was the career for me. I graduated magna cum laude with honors in December 2013. I started substituting the next school year, and I was then hired on for the next year.

Between Taylor and Kino, I taught 7th grade for 5 years. Now I'm eager to try the high school scene. 

Outside of school, I enjoy learning, video games, and playing with my friends. 

My Work at Skyline

I have four periods of World History classes. As part of Team Falcon, I work closely with Ms. Daugs, Mrs. Burchard, and Mrs. Day.

What to Expect This Year

This is the year we bounce back from the disruptions of 2020-2021, and hopefully things will go normally! I know that many of our students are coming with deficits, and I intend to be accommodating and understanding in helping my students move forward with their high school career. Most Wednesdays will be devoted to helping students stay on top of their work and progress wherever their needs are, or providing further opportunities for students who are excelling. 

To be prepared for my class, students need a pencil and their laptop. We might use one, both, or either any given day, but they need to come with both. I'll provide any other materials.
