Ready for Another Great Year at Mt. Graham High School
Welcome, students and parents! I am looking forward to teaching students at Mount Graham High School for the 2019-2020 school year, after stepping in to fill a staffing vacancy in 2017. I enjoy working with students at Safford USD's alternative high school, those who may not have been successful in a traditional high school setting.
My day school classroom of about 20 students can be found in rooms 3 and 5 at Mount Graham High School. This year Joan Olsen, a veteran English teacher, works alongside with me to foster student success. In addition to the day school program, Joan and I work with Henry Dunkerson Pathways Academy students from 1:00 to 3:00 PM, Mondays through Thursdays. I teach Adult Education classes with Tyler Blake and Shawntel Ballard on Tuesdays from 5:30 to 7:30 PM.
I am excited about the possibilities and opportunities that await us all in the year ahead. When students are self-motivated, they are able to achieve great things. Prior to coming to Mt. Graham, I worked as a teacher at Safford High School for many years.
