Welcome to our classroom and to 4th grade! My name is Jaron Foy, and I am thrilled to be your 4th grade gifted teacher for this school year. I am looking forward to getting to know you and your child in order to work together to create a positive learning environment.
My Education and Professional Background
I am originally from Hooper, Utah. It is a small town where I grew up on a family dairy farm. I have also lived in Japan and Oregon before settling in Arizona in 2008. I graduated in 2010 from University of Phoenix with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and a Master of Business Administration in 2013. I worked in the corporate sector designing customer training and technology education. In 2015 and after becoming a father, I made a career change to teaching. I received my Masters in Elementary Education from Arizona State University (Go Sun Devils!) in 2016. I was able to complete my student teaching and serve as a long-term substitute with Chandler Unified School District, all within the gifted program.
My Educational Philosophy
My educational philosophy is that we should never stop learning in any aspect of life! Learning happens naturally when we feel safe and cared for consistently. I have found that students are motivated best through individual positive reinforcement, high expectations, and clear objectives. I also know that each individual learns uniquely! Incorporation of various strategies and methods are implemented to help reach each of my student's individual way of processing and retaining information.
