High School U.S. History
I was born and raised in Wasco (Sherman County) and graduated from Sherman County High School in 1998. I attended Oregon State University and Eastern Oregon University, graduating in 2002 with a teaching degree and reading specialist endorsement. I started my teaching career in Goldendale, Washington where I taught 7thgrade language arts and reading from 2002-2005. While teaching in Goldendale, I obtained a Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Grand Canyon University. In 2005, I started teaching 6th grade at The Dalles Middle School. In 2011, I changed grades and started teaching 8thgrade language arts and reading, and then eventually some 8thgrade social studies. I joined the Dufur School teaching staff in the fall of 2015 and I am thrilled to be a part of this wonderful school!
I am married to my high school sweetheart, Wes, and we have two children: Audrey, born in 2006, and Gavin, born in 2008. In my spare time, I have a side photography business. I also enjoy riding my horses and spending time on my family’s cattle ranch in North Powder, Oregon.
Even after more than a decade of teaching language arts, I am still thrilled each and every time I introduce students to novels like To Kill a Mockingbird and to short stories like "Flowers for Algernon." It is such a privilege to be a part of students' experiences as they read some of the most amazing stories that have ever been written.
