"If a student can't learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the way they learn."
~ Ignacio Estrada
“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose."
~ Dr Seuss
Welcome to my classroom's electronic portal.
I moved to Utqiagvik from Colorado and have been teaching here since August 2010. I spent my first five years teaching at BHS where I was the class of 2014's advisor for four years and the student council advisor for five years. Because I firmly believe the words of Ignacio Estrada quoted above, I requested a transfer to Kiita. With a smaller staff and student population we have the ability to meet each student's individual learning needs while working in a constructivist atmosphere.
Kiita Learning Community is an exciting place to be. The students here are striving to meet their educational goals while they work to successfully to overcome many of life's challenges. I believe we have great learning opportunities before us, and I know that together we can make your educational experience challenging, fun, and productive, while we prepare you for your success in college, tech-school, and/or the career world. Remember, it's all about the direction YOU choose.
