Biography

I graduated from the University of Arizona with a Bachelor of Science degree in mathematics and a minor in computer science. After graduating, I worked for Digital Equipment Corporation for about nine years. When Compaq bought out Digital and my group was laid off, I took the opportunity to stay home with my children. Several years ago, I decided to become a substitute teacher primarily for high school math.  I enjoyed this experience and decided to go back to school to become a "real" teacher. I graduated from Arizona State University with a Masters in Secondary Education Mathematics along with an Arizona Teaching Certificate.

I am excited to be at Westwood High School teaching Geometry and Honors Precalculus this year. This will be my third year teaching at Westwood.

In the past I have enjoyed coaching youth soccer and volleyball. I have a passion for reading, learning, chocolate, and spending time outdoors. I have been married for 29 years and have six children and three grandchildren.
