I am excited about being 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, Global Studies (Critical Thinking), and AP U.S. Government.

When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family.
