I am native Arizonian, born and raised in Mesa. I attended Eisenhower, Carson Jr High and graduated from Westwood High School. I graduated from Northern Arizona University with undergraduate degree in Secondary Social Studies and graduate degree in Curriculum Development. I am in my 18th year with Mesa Public Schools.
