My Why Story

I grew up in the small town of Payson, Arizona. Most of my extended family are teachers, so when it came time to choose a career to pursue, I made the obvious decision. I attended Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff for 3 years before I returned to Payson to complete my student teaching. I graduated with my Bachelor’s Degree in History Education.

This is my second year at San Tan Charter School. My San Tan journey began when I graduated from NAU in December, and was offered the middle school English position. That semester was an incredible experience and I’m so grateful to have found this community! This year, I am excited to be teaching high school history!
