Why did you choose teaching as a career:
I have always enjoyed watching that “aha” moment that kids get when they conquer a difficult task.

What do you like most about teaching at Xavier?
I truly cherish what Xavier stands for. This school strives to give students the skills to become successful citizens, as well as becoming genuine and kind individuals.

Is there any other information about yourself that you would like to share?
Prior to teaching, I spent several years working as a Pharmacy Technician alongside my dad who is a Pharmacist. I learned a great deal from his words of wisdom. My experiences there have taught me a great deal of patience, as well as learning to laugh when things get tough.

Total Years of Teaching Experience: 4

Years of Teaching at Xavier: 2

Hometown: Twin Falls

Why did you choose teaching as a career:
I teach because I believe that one of the most important, substantial, and rewarding aspects of life is learning. Indeed, there is nothing so important as the process of continually developing a deeper understanding of yourself, your world, your place in it, and – ultimately – how to make the world better through that understanding.

What do you like most about teaching at Xavier?
Being able to see Xavier students’ exceptional performances and artwork (Showcase, congrego, etc.)

When you are not teaching and working, what are you most likely to be doing?
Growing food (vegetables), reading about food, cooking food, eating food or philosophizing about the food system.

What do you wish your students knew about you?
Someday I hope to start a food truck
