I have worked in the educational industry since 2013, enrolling students, providing academic support and working with online learning management systems. I love to help students achieve their potential academically and be a support system for them. Coming from mostly post-secondary experience, working with High School students has been such a blessing. I love to see our student’s blossom into who they are and build a personal relationship with them to help them succeed.
I have been a special education teacher since 2005. My background is in working with students with Emotional Disabilities, Learning Disabilities, and Autism in self-contained, inclusion, and now virtual settings. I am incredibly excited to support our students, families, and teachers. I am passionate about working with students with disabilities and helping them to gain the skills necessary to be successful, independent adults. I am excited to join the Blueprint team to support our students as they achieve their goal of graduating high school and reaching their goals for adulthood.
I have been teaching science for over 13 years. I hold degrees from Arizona State University, Northern Arizona University and am currently working with Clemson University in South Carolina to become a National Dropout Certified Specialist. I have a passion for all sciences and how they fit into our daily life. In my spare time I love traveling, music, photography, and spending time with my family. An avid hiker, I recently completed the 52 Week Hiking Challenge.
I started working in education back in 2006. My daughter graduated from Hope High school Online in 2017 and from knowing what I knew about the school, staff and support, I was quite impressed. In April of 2018, I decided to see if there were any open positions in the school. Lucky for me, there was an Academic Coach position that was open. I can honestly say that as impressed as I was, I had no idea just how much everyone truly cares for the students. I have never seen a group of people so invested in the students. I am very proud to be a part of this team and I look forward to meeting the students and families who we serve.
I received my bachelor’s degree from Arizona State University in urban planning with a minor in sustainability. More recently I received my master’s degree in higher education, also from Arizona State University. I have been working in the education field for the past 8 years with K-12 students and also at the college level. I am also currently an alumni mentor at Arizona State University. I am excited to help our students grow and succeed within their education and career goals.
I was born and raised in Phoenix, AZ. I attended Central High School and graduated from Arizona State University in 2008 with my degree in Special Education. I have worked in the brick and mortar high school setting and I am looking forward to working in the online high school setting. I have a passion for advocating for my students and connecting them with the post secondary education programs that will best serve them in the future. I believe all students can be successful if given the right tools.
I have been teaching children and adults for over 30 years. I hold a Master’s Degree in Education from Arizona State University as well as 24 graduate hours in Education Administration from Northern Arizona University. I grew up in Yuma, Arizona and graduated from Yuma High School, home of the Yuma Criminals.
I enjoy vacationing to Sedona, Arizona and Coronado, California and spending time with my granddaughters. My hobby is hunting for bargains at local thrift stores and garage sales. I swim and exercise at my local fitness club and participate in Bible studies at my church.
