About Mr. Jose Ramirez...
Welcome to my science class! I'm passionate about exploring scientific ideas with students to drive their curiosity in understanding the world around us.
My Education and Professional Background
I teach 7th grade science classes at AJHS. Before joining AJHS in 2020, I taught 7th and 8th grade science at Pendergast Elementary School District in Phoenix. I'm also CEO of Cholla AV, an event production company I founded in 2018. Prior to becoming an educator, I spent 10 years with Apple, most recently as an in-store trainer where I led knowledge initiatives for retail employees. I earned my M.Ed. from Arizona State University, where I was a Noyce scholar. I also earned my B.A. degree in Psychology at ASU.
My Educational Philosophy
Shape your education by pursuing subjects that interest you, and seek guidance in difficult subjects. What you get out of your education is equal to the amount of effort you put into it.
The Choice is Yours! Why Choose Andersen Junior High?
I chose Andersen Junior High because I am a proud product of this community. As a former Jaguar and Chandler Wolf, I have first-hand experience of the school and the district's consistent commitment to its students and staff. I appreciate our school's locale and the families it serves.
