I was born in Colorado but mainly grew up in Arizona where I spent my days working, running, and studying. I started my life after high school in the Army and through many great changes I fell in love with teaching. When I got out of the military I went to school where I received my degree from Austin Peay State University to teach with a cognate in mathematics. I have one son who has grown up in Norman Smith and as a parent I fell in love with the school, faculty, and the community. This has become my home and I am proud to inspire, teach, and help students achieve their truest potential. My door is always open. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any student praise or concerns. I am here for you and your child.
