Went back and earned a Bachelor's of Science Degree from ASU in of that same year. Became a substitute teacher while getting certified with a teaching degree from the University of Ottawa in 1995. Hired with the Phoenix Union High School District in July of 2000; I continued the Agribusiness Magnet Program.  Today I am teaching Freshman Physical Science and loving every single minute of it.  I have now facilitated as many as 19 different classes for the 19 years I have been here.
