Mrs. Houston

Hello! I am Mrs. Houston and I’m excited to be your 7th and 8th grade ELA and Leadership teacher. 

I was born and raised near Portland, Oregon and  graduated from the University of Oregon, which is where I met my Husband, Kris. We have been married for 13 years and have three kids (you’ll see them around campus) and three dogs (ranging from 7lbs to 120lbs). We moved to Arizona seven years ago to escape the colder weather and have fallen in love with the desert. Outside of school I enjoy discovering new restaurants, reading, swimming, watching TV and traveling. 

My goal is to create a safe, inclusive classroom environment that is founded on positive interaction and communication so please reach out to me for any questions or concerns. 

I look forward to getting to know all of you throughout the year!
