7th Grade Social Studies
7th Grade Social Studies is centered around American History from the Civil War time period (1860s) to the very beginning stages of World War 2 (1940s).
I am a native Arizonan and was born and raised in Tucson. I moved to the Gilbert/East Mesa area in 2006 and began my teaching career here at HJHS shortly there after. I am just starting my 11th year of teaching here at Highland Junior and love this school and community. My wife, Airin, also teaches in our district at Carol Rae Ranch Elementary. We have 4 children (Jarred 16, Reagan 14, McKenna 10, and Alivia 9 months). I also coach soccer, softball, and baseball here at HJHS. I love spending time with my family, watching various sporting events, and I am always on a quest to learn.
