Desert Heights Preparatory Academy People
I’ve always enjoyed working with young people and I thought that education awarded me the best opportunity to do this in a meaningful way. I liked the idea of being able to affirm the importance of education through example. The opportunity to work with like minded, equally compassionate people was also a factor. I have been very fortunate to accomplish these goals at Desert Heights.
I have always wanted to help others, especially kids, and teaching was how I felt I could do that. I taught Junior High History for several years before becoming an administrator. I very much enjoy working with kids of all ages and seeing them grow and develop, Desert Heights has become my family’s second home, and I am truly thankful for this amazing community!
K-4 Assistant Principal | Special Education Scheduling Support
I became an educator because I have always been drawn to helping kids, even when I was just a kid myself. I truly feel that every child deserves a champion and I come to school each day hoping that each child knows that I see their worth and potential. I’m grateful to be in a position that allows me to build relationships and make connections with our students on a daily basis.

When I was young, the idea of helping others to rise was a core family value. Working in education is the epitome of that belief because it means contributing to the growth and development of people, providing the platform for their success. I had amazing teachers who uplifted and empowered me. Ultimately, I am an educator so I can pay forward all of the great experiences I had…and continually help others to rise.
