Hello, and welcome to my class! This is my 11th year teaching, and my second year at Agua Fria High School. My goal when I became a teacher was to teach high school government, so I'm excited to finally teach my favorite subject. I love government because I grew up just outside of Washington D.C., and I was surrounded by government and politics every day. I attended Annandale High School in Annandale, Virginia, then went to Indiana University where I earned a B.S. in Telecommunications. After a couple of years in the "real world," I returned to IU and earned my B.S. in Secondary Education with an emphasis in social studies. I started my teaching career in Yuma, Arizona, but I'm happy to be living and working in Avondale.In my spare time I enjoy both watching and playing ice hockey, going to concerts, and playing my drums when I have time.
