I am bringing nearly 10 years of teaching experience to the Paideia community. I received my BA in Education from the University of Arizona (Go Wildcats!) and I graduated from Arizona State University (Go Sun Devils!) with a Masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction. I’m able to celebrate both rival schools! I LOVE reading, and I have many favorite books. I also love to write stories. I have published two books for young people! Making music is one of my favorite hobbies. You just might be in the classroom on a day when I bring my clarinet in, play on the keyboard, or decide to break into song!
My life is God- breathed.
I choose to make Him the center of my life.
I am therefore blessed with an abundance of joy and faith, which I am tasked with sharing.
My words may be few, but my actions will speak for me.
I live under the belief that the more you give, the more you will receive.
I live a life of purpose and meaning by serving, encouraging, and inspiring anyone who comes into contact with me.
I take on challenges and present challenges to others.
I never settle for good enough; I choose excellence.
I do not allow others to disturb my sense of peace, but my peace is settled in Christ.
I live fully and intentionally.
I am alive on purpose!
