    My name is Joshua Kornexl and I will be your teacher for this course.
    I am a former veteran of the Armed Forces and a Midwest transplant, graduating from Mankato East High School in 1998; I have one beautiful five-year old daughter, a five-month-old son, and one flat faced Persian- Siamese cat named Chloe.

    My Education and Professional Background

    I have degrees from Mesa Community College in general education, Arizona State University, Magna cum Laude in English and Secondary Education, and a master’s degree with Summa Cum Laude honors from West A&M in English. This will be my fifth-year teaching at Andersen Junior High, my second year with Chandler Online Academy, and I am happy to be a part of your students' academic adventure.  

    My Educational Philosophy

    I believe in the connection between discipline, studies and success. In order for a student to be successful beyond junior high and high school, they need to have a collaborative understanding of not just English Language Arts but of Science and mathematics as well. These disciplines work together to create a better understanding of the world and the students' relationship to it.
