Teacher biography - I have worked in education for 14 years, both in the classroom and in independent charter school. My original degrees were a Bachelor of Arts in Society and Justice with a minor in Art Education. After working in the Criminology field for 16 years, I went back to school and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Education and credential in Special Education.

I enjoy learning and continually work to become more knowledgeable in the teaching field. Currently I also hold credentials in English, US Government, US History, Economics, Multiple Subject, and the Arts. I am highly qualified to also teach Math and Science. In my free time, I love to travel, read, fish, walk, quilt, and create art.
