Experience

My teaching career began as a graduate student at New Mexico Highlands University in 2011. I taught Freshman Composition I&II for three semesters. After graduate school I joined Teach for America in 2014 where I was placed Las Vegas, NV. I worked within Las Vegas's Title I high schools as a Special Education English/Reading teacher from 2014-2018. While working as a Special Education teacher I worked part-time as an Intermediate ESL teacher for the College of Southern Nevada from 2015-2017. I was able to create strong relationships with ESL students from all over the world. The 2019-2020 school year is my first at Premier High School.I hope to build strong relationships and help Premier students achieve academic success.



Bio

I am originally from New Jersey, which means I enjoy pork roll, bagels, and New York. Although I enjoy the east coast I prefer the west coast. I have lived in several cities in the southwest/western region. I am a huge comedy fan and I like to attend stand up comedy shows. I also enjoy concerts, basketball, and festivals. I am new to Phoenix and hope to create memories here as well.
