Humanities Lead & Instructor
As a life-long Burqueña, I am committed to building up my community through education. My goal as a teacher is to give students the skills they need to think critically, identify and analyze credible sources, and consider multiple perspectives. History is made every day, and our students have a role to play in what comes next. Outside of school, I am chasing my two kids around, tending to my veggie garden and chickens, and voraciously reading.
Learning about individuals, their perspectives and choices makes me happy. Teaching to individuals, understanding their perspectives, and seeing them make choices makes me happier. I love everything literature and art related and occasionally I’m known to partake in art making (creative short fiction) myself.
In addition to teaching, I love adventure, travel and being in the outdoors. I have worked as an outdoor educator and a guide in Southern Africa, South America, Central America and all over the American West. My family is very important to me, especially my nieces and nephews. I grew up in Indiana with two sisters, no TV, and lots of books! In my free time, I love to mountain bike, ski, hike, and run rivers.
