I am currently a middle school photojournalism and computer teacher in urban Phoenix, Arizona. I have over a decade of experience in social studies, language arts, language acquisition and technology as well as experience in professional development and teacher coaching. This last year, I got the chance to speak at the White House Future Ready Summit.
I teach in an authentic style, blending together project-based learning and creative thinking with structured assignments that build prior knowledge.
NAU Graduate Student of the Year Award
I graduated from Arizona State University with a Bachelor's Degree in Education (Secondary) and History. I earned a Master's in Educational Technology from Northern Arizona University. However, most of what I've learned are things I learned from trial and error and from the people around me.
I love drawing, designing and writing. My proudest moments are when I craft a novel for my three kids and they fall in love with the stories.
