• Welcome to Ms. Pino's Homepage
    As a child growing up in a military family, I spent the first twelve years of my life in foreign countries, predominately Germany and South America. Once my dad retired, our family settled down in Sierra Vista, Arizona, and I graduated from Buena High. I earned a BA and MEd from the University of Arizona. I began my teaching career in my hometown, then transferred to the Phoenix Valley. I taught in the Tempe Elementary District and the Tempe Union HS District (McClintock) before making the transition to the Chandler District. I was fortunate enough to be involved in the opening of the best school in the state...Perry High!

    I cannot believe I begin my 41st year of teaching, but I still love my job and have a hard time imagining my life without my students. In my spare time, I enjoy golfing, playing tennis, shopping, reading, and hanging out with my dogs!

    The good teacher explains.

    The superior teacher demonstrates.

    The great teacher inspires.”
