    Hello and welcome!  I have taught English at CCHS for the last eleven years and I hope to continue to do so until I retire, many years from now.  My students are my inspiration and my joy!  It is an honor to work with them--I look forward to coming to work every day.   I love my job so much that I also teach English at South Mountain Community College in the evenings. 
    I am a native Arizonan.  I graduated from ASU with a B.A. and an M.A. in English.  I also graduated from University of Nebraska with an M.A. in Classics and a Ph.D. in English.  It is cold in Nebraska, so I am thrilled to be back home where I can hike and kayak every day of the year.  I am also an avid knitter and I love to read.  Whenever I get a chance, I visit my seven nieces and nephews in Tucson.
