About Me
This is my 8th year in education.  I have taught 7th, 8th, 9th, 11th, and 12th grade English as well as AP Literature and Composition which has been instrumental in my understanding of where my students have been and where they are going.  I have been married for 18 years to Camron and we have three wonderful children: Bailey who is 21 and currently working as an Electrician Apprentice, Skylar who is 20 and currently attending college to earn a degree in Applied Science as an X-ray Technician, and Delainie who is 15 and currently attending Highland High School where she is involved in Drama, FFA, and AVID.  When we are not working we enjoy hiking, movies, and playing card games with the kids.  Teaching is my second career, I was in healthcare management for 17 years, but I left that career for teaching because I truly enjoy coming to class each day and having the privilege of working with my students.
