Degrees and Certifications:
Bachelor of Arts (Secondary Education/History)
I am very excited to be teaching at Maricopa High School this year. This year will mark my sixth year as a teacher, but will be my first year in this district. I have taught both history and English in the past to a variety of different grades. I also coach basketball and have led a team to win the school’s first basketball championship.
My philosophy on education includes the fact that everyone can learn. A learning environment should be a safe and fun place, with rigorous assignments, where students feel comfortable and confident in themselves and their work. Students should give their best effort in all that they do in class in order to be successful. In short, students should be able to leave school each day feeling accomplished and having learned something that they can apply to their lives.
