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.
