My teaching experiences range from 6 year olds to adults. This is my 21st year teaching in the Deer Valley Unified School District. My favorite grade level and academic area is middle school History. I absolutely LOVE my job! I look foward in engaging your interest in our unique and wonderful country.
My teaching philosophy is simple: I strive to create a community of learners where everyone feels respected and challenged to reach their full potential.
