8th Grade Panther English Language Arts (ELA)
Degrees and Certifications:
I am a Scottsbluff graduate (class of '86). I attended WNCC then received my bachelor's degree in secondary English education with a middle school endorsement from the University of Wyoming in 1993. I have taken graduate classes from both UW and Chadron State College. I completed my Master's of Education in Curriculum and Instruction with a Literacy focus in May of 2016 from the University of Texas, Arlington. This is my 24th year at Bluffs Middle School. I enjoy the middle school because it gives me the opportunity to work with students during a time of great change and development.
