Welcome to the 2021-22 school year. I am very excited to continue my teaching journey at Summit Academy for the sixth year. This is my eleventh year teaching English, and I am looking forward to many more years, here in the Mesa Public School District. I can't wait to learn together with you. When in doubt, please reach out!

  • Colored Pencils

familyWhen I am not at school I enjoy going on adventures with my eight year old Connor, and my husband Brad. I consider myself a life long learner, and I am continuously on the search for new information regarding English, and Middle School students.

I am a firm believer that it takes a village so please don't hesitate to email or call me, with any questions or concerns.

Click here to see the Arizona standards for English Language Arts and Literacy at the middle school level. We will be focusing on writing, using informational text to reach our goals. Our focus for the first three quarters will focus on Argumentative and Informative essay writing to help prepare our students for the future. The last quarter of the year we will wrap up with Narrative writing, Poetry, and Public Speaking. We will use these standards and curriculum to help our students be IB, think Globally, and be Internationally minded.
