I am currently in my fourth year as a secondary teacher.
I am currently teaching mid/high school Special Education.
I have been working in the district for 6 years now. 2 years were as an IT technician.
Prior to my carrer in education, i spent 11 years as a Wildland Fire Fighter for the US Forest Service, and the US Fish and Wildlife Department.
I enjoyed traveling around the country to assist in wildfire supression, as well as aide in control burns for habitat restoration purposes. I met many amazing people and saw some beautiful country that I would have never seen otherwise.
My firefighting experience has taught me how to work hard and appreciate everything I have. I am truely blessed to have worked in the field as long as I did.
