I am a Mesa Public Schools alumni.  I attended Salk, Jefferson, Taft and Stevenson Elementary schools as the district was growing.  I was part of the inaugural Stevenson Stallions' class helping to choose the Stallion mascot.  I then attended Fremont Jr. High and I am a graduate of Mesa High School ('86).

I then attended and graduated from the University of Arizona (U of A) earning a Bachelor's of Science in Education and went on to earn a Master's of Education from Northern Arizona University (NAU). I completed earning my second masters from Grand Canyon University (GCU) in administration (Feb '16).

I began teaching in Brawley, CA and then returned to Arizona, and my home area, in the mid 1990's. 
I began teaching locally at Connolly Middle School in Tempe, AZ  through May 2002.
I then moved into the Mesa district teaching at Smith Jr. High in the fall of 2002.

In the fall of 2010 I moved to Taylor Jr. High where I teach 7th and 8th grade
co-ed physical education.

In addition to teaching PE, I am the Taylor Jr. High Athletic Director (AD).

My outside hobbies include family and church activities, coaching baseball for kids from the age of 9
up through high school and I am certified to umpire baseball from little league up to college.

By the way...if you don't know, I am a HUGE Pittsburgh Steelers Fan!!!!
