I arrived in Casa Grande in 2019. Prior to this, I was living in Marion, Montana, enjoying fishing, hiking, and building a new home. This was after I had retired from teaching in 2016 from the Clark County School District in Las Vegas, Nevada, teaching 9th, 10th, and 12th grade reading and writing proficiency. Originally from Southern California, I received my bachelor’s degree from the University of California at Northridge, and afterward enrolled in the Michael D. Eisner College of Education to complete a master's equivalent and teaching certificate. To finalize my degree, I attended both UCLA and Phoenix University. Thereafer, I worked in the Los Angeles Unified School District teaching English 9 and 10, prior to moving to Las Vegas. After arriving in Casa Grande, I worked at Peptech High School in a blended classroom environment. I have a teaching certificate for California, Nevada, Montana, and Arizona. Next stop, unknown.
