I graduated from BYU with a degree in History, adding state licensure in History and French Language Teaching. I earned an M.A. in History at the University of Utah and a doctorate in Curriculum in Instruction from the University of Texas at Austin. I taught history and French in both Utah and Texas before moving with my family to Hawaii. After nine years at BYU-Hawaii, I returned to Utah and joined the faculty in the McKay School. Currently I serve as Director of the Education Preparation Accreditation Office.
I love traveling, reading, all things social studies, and spending time with my family.
I enjoy helping preservice teachers to become more reflective in their practice. I approach teaching through a collaborative process, helping students to construct knowledge through cooperative learning and engagement.
Critical thinking skills and the use of primary source documents in social studies education; reflection as a part of teacher improvement; and the role of mentoring in teacher development.
