About Mr. Steve Yontez...
I started teaching in 2002 (the same year, I got married!) and I have been teaching at Basha since 2006. The upcoming school year will be my fifth year in fourth grade. I started my career teaching 5th grade.
My Education and Professional Background
Masters from University of Phoenix, Post Bac from same university, Bachelors from ASU, Klingspor Sales Rep (sandpaper!), Banana Boat Merchandiser, Embassy Suites Room Service/Banquet, bus person for a few restaurants and paper route!
My Educational Philosophy
I would like to see all students succeed. I hope that they become life long learners in any field that they find interesting. I am here to help and guide them towards enjoying education (not just within a classroom, but a passion for learning).
The Choice is Yours! Why Choose Basha Elementary?
Basha is a very welcoming school. I truly believe that when kids move on from here, that they are prepared for further education and the real world. They know when it's time to work hard and when it's time to have some fun.
