I have moved many times in my life. Having lived in and visited several places around the world (Mexico, Brazil, Turkey, Russia, Ukraine, Jordan). After an exhaustive life, I settled in the state of Idaho with my family, simply because it ROCKS! I have been married for over 25 years to my best friend and have 4 wonderful children. This is my 11th year teaching in the valley and my first at West. I graduated from Point Loma Nazarene University, with a degree in Literature/Writing and later received a Masters of Education/Religion from Nazarene Theological Seminary in Kansas City. It is my passion to teach and encourage students to grow beyond their own expectations and to expand their achievements as they develop into lifelong learners without limitations.
