Favorite Place on Campus
My favorite place on campus is my classroom. Teaching is the best part of my day, and I have many fond memories of discussing history with my students in Upper Shumway over the years.

Why I love to teach
I have always loved history. By teaching history I get to share the subject I love most with a new group of students each year. I have taught history at various levels ranging from sixth through twelfth grade during my career. I have enjoyed every group of students I have worked with in my 18 years in the classroom. I love learning and discovering new perspectives. I love to see history through my students eyes as they encounter information for the first time and start to figure out the lessons of the past.
I love to spend time with my family. In addition, I am a voracious reader. I also love to bake, as my students are well aware.
