My Message

I have worked with all ages of learners as a teacher, administrator, and instructional coach in both public and charter settings. In 2014, I was selected as one of 95 English Language Arts teachers to publish free curriculum resources as a member of the of the Master Teacher Project. In 2016, I was named Teacher of the Year by the Deer Valley Education Foundation and was named as a semi-finalist for Arizona Teacher of the Year by the Arizona Educational Foundation, placing me in the top ten in the state. In addition to my work in education, I am a great supporter of the Arts throughout the state. I am very excited to be joining the amazing team at Sun Valley this year!
