​​​​​​​​​​​​Before school administration I was a full time classroom teacher for 6 years.  I have taught English, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Anatomy and Physiology, Algebra, Environmental Science, Honors Chemistry and Honors Physics. Before moving to New Vista I was the director of a college preparatory and fine and performing arts charter high school in Flagstaff Arizona. 

New Vista is a school that balances academic rigor with concern with individual students.  I am passionate about schools that are human in scale.  I was drawn particularly to New Vista because of our faculty and our student body. The faculty at New Vista is incredible.  Daily I am amazed and excited by what is going on in our classrooms.  Our teachers continuously push themselves to accommodate all students and keep individual needs in the forefront of their practice. I am learning more from our students than I ever thought possible.  New Vista students seem especially adept at thinking critically, speaking out and interacting with the larger world in a very creative way. ​
