I am excited to be a teacher at Vista Ridge High School! The students here are amazing! Since starting at VRHS, I have taught such classes as Civics and American Government. Currently, I am teaching U.S. History and Global Studies (Critical Thinking).

When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family. Sometimes you access my classroom website or calendar, please click on the link below:
