Parents & Students,
I am very excited to be here at Deer Valley High School. I was born and raised here in the Phoenix area and graduated from Cortez High School. After attending GCC for two years, I decided to joined the U.S. Navy. I enjoyed 10 years active duty before it was time to get back into teaching. I've been teaching ever since 2014 in California, Washington, and Arizona.
In my spare time, I enjoy swimming, camping, hiking, and working in my yard. I have two children, one daughter and one son. My family is very important to me.
I'm very excited to start a new school year and hope your student is too! If you have any questions and/or concerns, please feel free to contact me with any questions you have.
