Welcome to Sage Creek High School! I am thrilled to have the opportunity to pursue my passion of giving students the opportunity to reach their potential and discover how the skills learned in this class allow them to have a voice both inside and outside of school. I firmly believe that the ability to communicate effectively opens doors for people no matter what their ultimate life goals. In my class we will have the opportunity to share ideas, collaborate, and grow as individuals, but with this comes hard work. This is a good thing, and there is value in pushing ourselves to continuously grow as people and become passionate about continuously learning and exploring our ever changing world.
In addition to the exciting work here at Sage Creek, I also enjoy playing and coaching volleyball when I can, going on photography adventures, and learning about technology in this changing world.
I am excited to work here at Sage Creek and look forward to meeting my students this year!
