What do you like about working at University High School?

Within a set of graduation requirements, teachers at University High School are encouraged to be creative in what is taught and how it is taught. Both students and teachers are given the opportunity to sink deeper into knowledge, to uncover yet more questions. The individual is not lost within the community, nor is the community sacrificed for the individual.

Personal Information

My family is my heart. I most happily give my time to reading to wind up or wind down, reading to escape, reading to discover, reading to laugh, reading to cope — reading, reading, reading. The Southwest is the “land of enchantment.” I enjoy opera. With a friend, I like to see and argue about Shakespeare.
