"To be great is to be misunderstood" Ralph Waldo Emerson
Hello, and welcome to my class!
To tell you a little bit about myself, this is my fourth year here at Mountain Ridge High School and my seventh year teaching within public education. In previous years I have worked with all grades, but I am very excited to have the opportunity to work with freshmen again.
I graduated from Northern Arizona University with my Bachelor's of Science in Education with an emphasis in English and a minor in History, and upon graduation I received Summa Cum Laude Latin honors in addition to Liberal Studies honors. While attending NAU I worked for the university's honors writing and mentoring programs as well as had the opportunity to be an HON101 facilitator.
On a personal note, I am originally from California and enjoy reading, playing with my dog Arlo, as well as hiking and skiing with my husband Michael.
I also wanted to say that while this school year presents many new and different challenges due to COVID19, I am here for each and every one of you. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have questions, concerns, or tech issues.
Please be advised that my email is the best way to contact me.
