Degrees and Certifications:
While I have made my home in Tucson for the past 28 years, I was raised in the Great Plains of Kansas. After high school in the Kansas City suburbs, I attended the University of Kansas. Sadly, I couldn't pursue my dreams of being a marine biologist since, y' know, I was going to school in Kansas, as far from an ocean as one could get. After earning my BS degree in Biology, I explored several opportunitites. I worked as a research assistant at Assateague Island National Seashore in Maryland, as a veterinary technician in Idaho, and as a 1st grade classroom aide in Virginia, before settling in Tucson as a Science teacher here at Amphi.
My time here has been well spent. I taught at AHS through the 90's, before leaving to work in the Inventory Logistics field. After over a decade of IL management in the Tucson-Nogales corridor, I realized that teaching was indeed my true calling, and have worked back into education through tutoring, SAT and ACT test prep instruction, and substitute teaching. I am rejoining the Amphi family this year, and am very excited to be here!
