I am so very excited to announce that I have been asked to be the new US History, Psychology and Mock Trial teacher at Desert Christian High School in Tucson, AZ! This summer I have been busy building curriculum for these classes, and as a new teacher, that means starting from scratch. While having three new preps to build can be a bit overwhelming, I am finding that it is not “work.” The study of history and social sciences is near and dear to my heart; how blessed am I to have the opportunity to do what I love as a career?

I very much look forward to meeting my 2016/17 students and well as their parents. This year is going to be amazing! I already have field trips, guest speakers and awesome projects planned.

This will be a year of telling stories: the kind that grip you and elicit a wide range of emotions because they are true and personal as citizens of this great nation. timthumb.phpThis will be a year spent in the courtroom, where the great laws of our country are put to the test and the future of American citizens hang in the balance.

This will be a year of personal and societal discovery, where we’ll embrace the aspects of conscious and unconscious thought, marveling at God’s creation of the human being. The sky is the limit and I only have nine months to cram it all in. Get ready for the ride of a lifetime!
