Welcome!

Welcome to our classroom! My name is Jaron Foy. I am thrilled to be your teacher for this school year. I am looking forward to getting to know your student in order to work hard together to create a positive learning environment for all.

My Education and Professional Background

I am originally from a small town in northern Utah where I grew up on a dairy farm. I 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, I made a career change to teaching. I received my Masters in Elementary Education from Arizona State University in 2016. I was able to complete my student teaching at Knox Gifted Academy and teach gifted 4th & 5th grade at Jacobson Elementary. I am excited to be a part of Weinberg Gifted Academy! I enjoy spending as much time as I can with my wife (married in 2009), son (born in 2012), and daughter (born in 2015).

My Educational Philosophy

My educational philosophy stems from my desire to be the type of teacher I would have loved to have. We should never stop learning in any aspect of life! Learning happens naturally when we feel we can take risks and travel into unexplored territory. I have found that students are motivated best through high expectations, clear objectives, and a sense of community. I try to incorporate various strategies and unique methods to help reach each of my student's individual way of processing and retaining information.
