    I am excited for another year of teaching here in my home - the Mat-Su Valley.  I have a double degree in both Education and English (literature).  I grew up in the valley and graduated from Colony High in 1994.  I then continued my education at the University of Alaska Anchorage and have been teaching since 2000 - in both Las Vegas, NV and here in the Mat-Su

    In my tenure, I have coached multiple sports, including: wrestling, cross-country, soccer, and track.  In 2009, 2010, 2011  I was awarded Region III coach of the year for Track and Field, and I have led my running teams to five combined State championships in Cross-Country and Track. In 2012, I was selected as  BP teacher of excellence for the Mat-Su Valley and have subsequently been nominated every year since then.  Excellence in education is my passion and it is something I take seriously.

    In the first year of CTHS offering AP Lit. (2013-14) 12 of the 14 students who took the class passed the exam with a 3 or higher. In (2014-15) 20 of my 23 students passed with a 3 or higher, and last year 19 of 21 passed!  This standard of excellence is something I don't take lightly - I push my students to achieve more than they thought possible.  I enjoy teaching as a profession and hold both myself and my students to a high standard of education and professionalism.
