Biography

Education:  B.A. in History with a minor in Political Science from Metropolitan State University of Denver -   M.A. in the Diverse Learner Education Program at the University of Phoenix and currently enrolled in second M.A. Degree program in American History through Pace University.    

Years Teaching:  This will be year #28.  My first year of teaching twenty-eight years ago was in Shiprock, New Mexico, (in Navajo Land) and I am an activist in collaboration with the American Indian Movement (although I'm not native myself).    

I bring much classroom and world travel experience to share with my students.  I have been fortunate to receive numerous scholarships and travel awards to study domestically and abroad through Gilder-Lehrman Institute of American History, National Consortium for Teaching East Asia, Colorado Consortium for Teaching East Asia, Fulbright-Hays, National Endowment for the Humanities, and the Transatlantic Outreach Program, and have visited 19 countries and studied briefly in most of them on study tours.  I taught in Sydney, Australia, at Kambala Girls' School in 2008 on a teacher exchange program, and have been teaching Advanced Placement classes since 2005.  I am also an AP Reader for the AP Exam.

I enjoy the outdoors and grew up in Wyoming, but spent a majority of my life so far in Colorado.  I have been in Arizona for eight years.
