Bio

I was born and raised in Scottsdale before moving to Washington for college. Since then, I've been pursuing education nonstop - both as a teaching career and continued personal education.

In addition to teaching, I spend my spare time gardening, playing video games, cooking, reading, and playing chess. More on my hobbies is included further down!

I will be running the Chess Society this year; high school meets Wednesdays at Lyceum in Room 230. All grades meet Wednesday after school starting at 2:45 in Room 201 - the later time is hosted by Mr. McAfee). If you want to join, come find us!

I currently am or have been involved with:

  • Chess Society

  • Archery

  • Theatre productions

    • Seussical

  • Fantasy Society

  • Extracurricular programming opportunities

Hobbies

I enjoy gardening, and have been trying to grow plants for tea.

Board games, especially chess. I play a few days a week, both with students and outside of school. I am also fond of Connect 4 and Go, but I don't know many people that play the latter. Ask me about learning the game!

I also enjoy video games, and design* Pokémon for fun! Here are two interesting examples: Archaera was developed based on interactions with the Fantasy Society enrichment course, and Clammon came from a discussion with a student in Homework Club.

*I do not draw the artwork myself - I develop all the written portions of the documents, and various artists develop the visuals.
