I am glad to be joining the team at Rancho Mirage High School. When I was fifteen years old I visited Paris and immediately fell in love with the French culture and language. When I returned to New Mexico I began studying French in high school. Years later, after receiving my BA in French, I packed up and moved to France. The time I spent traveling and living over seas opened up my eyes to the endless possibilities the world has to offer. I returned to New Mexico and received my Master's in Education. It is then I moved to the Coachella Valley to help open Desert Hot Springs High School where I taught for 8 years. I have taught many subjects, French, theatre, dance, leadership and many others, and I find it difficult to say which I like best. I have learned over the years that it is the teaching of students, not the particular subject, that I enjoy the most.
Since leaving Desert Hot Springs High School to focus on my family, I have been keeping active in education. I have taught for College of the Desert, Idyllwild Arts Academy and On Your Feet Dance Productions. I am excited to be returning to the secondary level as a Rattler!
