Why TSAS? I believe the heart of education rests within the hands of teachers, and TSAS recognizes and elevates this philosophy. It is a place where teachers give students the tools to grow and learn in dynamic classrooms. TSAS cultivates an environment of rich academic preparation while appreciating the unique needs and interests of the individuals we are and we want to become. I am honored to work alongside everyone who calls TSAS home.

Why TSAS? I worked in public history and education on the programming side for many years and learned a lot about what constitutes educational excellence. After a long term substitute teaching assignment at TSAS in 2012 I knew that teaching here would be my dream job, and it is. TSAS gives teachers the freedom develop innovative and challenging curriculum and the students are awesome!

Interesting Fact:  I’m an army brat and married a peripatetic historian so, as Johnny Cash says, “I’ve been everywhere, man.” I’ve lived in two countries and eleven states and travel every change I get.
