"Teacher seeks pupil. Must have an earnest desire to save the world. Apply in person." - Daniel Quinn
Before you go on to explore the information that the rest of this web page unveils, you may wish to know a little about me. The 2017-2018 school year will be my eighth year at Skyline High School. In addition to teaching Sophomore English, Honors Freshman English, and Freshman English classes, I also sponsor Service Learning. Furthermore in the mornings and after school, I work with our school's Credit Recovery Program.
In addition to loving teaching, I'm also proud of the learning that I have accomplished myself. Originally from Georgetown, Kentucky, I graduated from the University of Kentucky with a BA in political science in December 2009. After earning my bachelor's degree I was selected to serve in Teach For America. Without this program, I would have never moved to Arizona, and I would not have the professional skills I now possess. Finally, I earned my master's degree in secondary education from Arizona State University in May 2012.
While I am finally done with my "official schooling," I know the true learning never stops. I hope by the time you leave my class, you will feel the same.
