Welcome to my website!  I have the privilege of teaching Pre-AP World Cultures I, U.S. History, and Basic U.S. History this year. This is my thirteenth year of teaching and I absolutely love working at GPHS.  I have three amazing kids: Kaylen (8), Jordan (6) and Jackson (2).  My husband, Aaron, also teaches Social Studies and GPHS and it is a joy to work with him.


Thank you for visiting my teacher page. Please select the course you are interested in learning more about from the menu on the left.  There you will find links to Google Calendars, Unit PowerPoints, and other useful resources.
