Degrees and Certifications:
I joined the Selah School District in 2021. I was hired as a Career and Technical Educator (CTE)
under the Computer Science Pathway. I am excited to start my career of teaching in a school district
with such a supportive administration moving forward. I received my CTE certification through
Eastern Washington University. It is my belief that if you give students input on what and how they
learn then they will take stock in the classroom and make it something that interests them.
At Central Washington University I studied computer science, information technology and cyber
security. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Network Administration and Cyber Security in 2017.
During my time at CWU I was the head of the Student Technology Committee where we maintained
current technology and brought new/emerging technology to the students on campus, including 3D
printers, Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality stations and a variety of other items as well. I arrived at
this pathway because I had always been interested in all things having to do with computers,
hardware, software, video games, computer repair and how they work. However, I have years of
experience in multiple fields such as Precision Sheet Metal Fabrication, General Construction and
Woodworking, Automotive Service Technician and my current field Computer Science and
My current mantra; 2021 is a building year for the Computer Science Pathway under the CTE branch
at Selah High School. I am coming in at the ground level and laying a foundation for the direction we
want to go. Currently, we offer Introduction to Computer Science, AP Computer Science, Video
Game Design and Robotics. My current goal is to expand Video game Design from where we are
now and get into Unity and or Unreal engine to design and model 3d games from scratch.
Additionally, I envision expanding the robotics program to include remote piloting both on the ground
robots and in the air as the industry is currently heading in that direction. In just this first year I feel
we have taken large strides as a High School in laying the groundwork to do these things and more.
I look forward to seeing what each year brings and the ideas our students come up with as their own
