    Welcome to my web page.  Let me introduce myself.  I am a retiree from the Phoenix Union High School District.  I retired in 2013 after 22 years in the district, the last 12 at Cesar Chavez. This is my second year back at Maryvale.  I also worked at South Mountain, Carl Hayden and Maryvale once before.  I was also an adjunct instructor at Chandler Gilbert Community College for the past five years.  I have coached many sports in my career: 15 years as a girl’s golf coach at Chavez, Desert Vista and Chandler Gilbert Community College, as well as girls’ varsity soccer at Maryvale, Chavez, Desert Vista and Central.  I have also coached baseball for years, most recently at Central in 2017.  I am currently the girls tennis coach at Camelback High School.  I have taught more classes than I can remember but I currently teach AP and Honors Government, Government and Honors Economics here at Maryvale.  I have lived in Arizona for 39 years and am an 11 year veteran of the US Air Force and Arizona Air National Guard. 

    I am happy and excited to be here at Maryvale and look forward to working with the staff, parents and students.
