7th Language Arts / Marketing

Biography:

I was born in Cleveland, Ohio and spent my childhood and young adult years attending school and enjoying time with my family and friends.  I received my undergraduate degree from John Carroll University in Communications.  After graduation, I began working in radio for two local Cleveland radio stations, 98.5 WNCX Cleveland’s Classic Rock and 92.3 Xtreme Radio as a Marketing Coordinator and On-Air Talent.  Deciding to change careers, I moved away from my family in the Midwest, and pursued a teaching career in Tucson, Arizona.  I became Arizona Highly Qualified and spent five years teaching high school English at a small charter school in Tucson.  In my free time I enjoy sports, attending local sporting events, traveling to new cities and places, taking my dog Micah to the dog park, hiking, reading, or enjoying a good movie.  I am very fortunate to have the opportunity to teach Health and Life Skills and Fitness courses to Learning Foundation and Performing Arts’ students in Gilbert.  After five years in Tucson getting my feet wet, I am excited to spend time in the Valley with my new family of students!
