I graduated from Wasatch High School in 2011. Many of the same teachers I had through High School are still here.
My interest in secondary education was heavily spurred by an opportunity I had to work with young adults as a paraprofessional in a wilderness therapy program, the Anasazi Foundation. Here, our clients would come from around the nation to live and hike in the deserts of Arizona. Together we would learn how to survive hiking through the desert, making primitive fires, and experienced a raw teaching and power from the earth that very few people in this day and age have felt. I loved my experience working in Wilderness Therapy. It's something I think back on and refer to every day.
I have a wide array of interests. After school and on weekends you can find me hiking, biking, snowboarding, snowshoeing, watching a show or movie, playing basketball, racquetball, guitar, drums, listening to music or any number of things. I rarely know what to say when people ask me- "what do you for fun?" It just depends on what I might happen to be into that week. I see myself as the personification of being a jack of all trades, master of none.
I am teaching US History, World History, and US Government.
