This course provides students with an in-depth study of the Arizona College and Career Readiness Standards (AZCCRS). This course will utilize the SpringBoard curriculum, the College Board’s official Pre-AP program, to develop students’ abilities to read, write, think, and communicate critically. Students will regularly engage in reading from multiple genres, acquiring vocabulary in context, writing development, listening and speaking in whole or small group formats, and presenting informally or formally.
I recently transferred to Desert Ridge Junior from Mesquite Junior this year, and I am so excited to have joined the Rattler family! I am a graduate from Arizona State University with two bachelors degrees focusing in English Literature and Secondary Education. I have a passion for teaching, and I absolutely love being in the classroom!
In my free time, I love to read, write, and spend time with my family. I have a cat named Simon and a dog named Luna. I love being outdoors, camping, and travelling.
I encourage both parents and students to contact me with any questions or concerns they may have.
