This is my 9th year at Thornton High School. I enjoy teaching students and supporting literacy skill development. Prior to being a special education English teacher, I taught physical education for 11 years. I have enjoyed the transition from the gymnasium into the classroom. It is most pleasing to watch students develop reading and writing skills so that they become more confident life-long learners. I also strive to make the learning environment as pleasant as possible, so that students enjoy coming to my class. I like to have fun with my students. I love to laugh with them and learn from them as well.
