    I was born in Santa Clara, California and moved to Seattle, Washington when I was 8. I moved to Phoenix in June 2015. I went to the University of Washington where I earned my BS in Mathematics with a minor in Chemistry. After graduating, I attended Seattle Pacific University where I earned my Master in Teaching Math & Science. While earning my masters, I completed a full year of student teaching at Skyline High School in Sammamish, WA where I taught Algebra 1-2 and Pre-Calculus. For three years, I worked at The Bear Creek School in Redmond, WA where I taught AP Statistics, Geometry, and Algebra 3-4. I have worked at Sandra Day O'Connor High School teaching Geometry & AP Stats for the past three years. And yes, I'm a Seahawks fan.

    Holly Craft, holly.craft@dvusd.org - I am going into my 8th year teaching, and am excited to be starting my first year in the Deer Valley School District in the Deer Valley Online Learning Program. I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Criminal Justice from ASU and began teaching while working towards my Masters in Education from ASU as well. This year, I will be teaching Algebra 1&2, Honors Algebra 1&2, Geometry 1&2, and Honors Geometry 1&2 in addition to working on Math 7. I love helping students understand math--a subject that is often not a favorite. I am a huge sports fan and love getting to spend time with my family.
