Welcome!Welcome to Coach Bailey's class page. This is my 13th year of teaching. I am looking forward to working with my sophmores in English Language Arts in my sixth year here at Perry and my seniors via the Chandler Online Academy. I am also a varsity assistant football coach here at Perry and I coach boys soccer at Payne Junior High. Please contact me via email if you have any questions, problems, or concerns this school year.
My Education and Professional BackgroundI am a native of Arizona and attended Mesa High School. I have taught English Language Arts and coached football for the past twelve years at Chandler, Poston Butte, and Florence High Schools before I came to Perry. I graduated from the University of Utah with a Bachelor's degree in English and I have a Master's in Education from Arizona State University in Currciculum and Instruction.
My Personal BackgroundI have been married twenty years to my undeniably brilliant, absolutely gorgeous, long-suffering, patient wife, Licia. We love to travel, go to bookstores, movies, concerts, baseball games, and love the sunny life of Arizona with our dog.
Educational PhilosophyI have three major statements that guide my own educational philosophy:1. Question everything and always think critically.2. Realize that you can never know it all.3. Never stop learning.
