"To be great is to be misunderstood" Ralph Waldo Emerson
Hello, and welcome to my class!
(Academic Expectations: Be sure to mark your calendars for Thursday, August 16th @6:30PM)
To tell you a little bit about myself, this is my second year here at Mountain Ridge High School, having previously taught for Scottsdale Unified School District for three and a half years. In previous years I have worked with all grades, but I am very excited to have the opportunity to work with freshmen and sophomores this year.
I graduated from Northern Arizona University with my Bachelor's in Science in Education with an emphasis in English and a minor in History, and upon graduation I graduated with Summa Cum Laude Latin honors as well as Liberal Studies honors. While attending NAU I worked for the university's honors writing and mentoring programs as well as had the opportunity to be an HON101 facilitator.
On a personal note, I am originally from California and enjoy reading, playing with my dog Arlo, as well as hiking and skiing with my husband Michael.
Please be advised that my email is the best way to contact me.
