I am a product of Deer Valley Unified School District. I graduated from Deer Valley High School in 2007 where I went on to Glendale Community College to earn an Associates of Arts in Elementary Education. From there, I went on to Arizona State University where I graduated this December 2013 with a Bachelor of Arts in Secondary Education with emphasis in English, and a Bachelor of Arts in English. I also went back to ASU to complete my Masters in Gifted Education, and just finished my second Masters in Educational Leadership in May of 2019. This is my seventh year teaching here at Stetson Hills!
I am currently in my fifth year coaching volleyball here at Stetson, and in my second year as Athletic Director.
In my free time I am an avid reader. I absolutely adore all literature, especially medieval and renaissance literature, but Shakespeare holds a special place in my heart. There is something that is truly just so beautiful about his written word.
As you can see from the picture, I also love to spend my time in Disneyland with my friends and family. Aside from Disneyland, I am also very involved with the Arizona Renaissance Festival that comes here every spring. My animals also mean the world to me! Currently I have three cats (Chewie, Indy, and Mickey), and 10 ratties (Moonflower, Flynn, Rider, BradPitt, Percy, Panda, Romeo, Slinky, Winston, and Ranger). In addition, I foster ratties as well through Any Rat Rescue, and am actively involved with them.
Some of my favorite things include:
Starbucks (iced caramel macchiatos!)
Anything pumpkin flavored
The color pink
Target (I could literally live there!)
