I began teaching English and coaching quiz bowl at Westside High School in the spring of 2002. I currently teach Pre AP English 9 and English 10.
I began my teaching career in the fall of 1997 teaching both English and Spanish in grades 6-12. I have also taught preschool, ages 2-5, and tutored all grade levels.
I have three wonderful children Dani, Nicholas, and Ryan, all of whom attended Westside. All are grown and gone, but Nicholas has gifted me with the most perfect grandchildren in the world. Bear, my 110 pound lab now keeps me company at home.
When I am not teaching, I enjoy games and camping with friends and family, reading, traveling, mosaic crafts and painting.
