Biography

This is my seventh year teaching at Westwood and my eighth year teaching in Mesa Public Schools.  I come from a family of teachers--my husband and my mom teach here at Westwood with me and my dad teaches at Carson.  I grew up in the Scottsdale School District and graduated from Chaparral High School.  Wanting a change of scenery, I moved to Flagstaff to attend Northern Arizona University, where I studied Secondary English Education with a minor in Biology.  I then spent a year teaching in Scottsdale.  Despite the fact that I grew up in Scottsdale, my first time in front of  a class was in Mesa (before I was even born!) and I loved it so much I decided to return.  I spent a year teaching Biology as a mustang at Dobson before finding my warrior spirit and making my way to Westwood, where I found my home!  After three years of teaching English here, I decided I missed the science classroom and switched back to Biology.

 

Outside of school, I spend most of my time running around and reading books with my one-year-old daughter.  I also enjoy training and teaching martial arts, playing Dungeons and Dragons, reading, watching Disney, and cuddling with my dog (Lando) and my cat (Bast).
