About Ridvan Bircicek...
Position: Mathematics Teacher
I have been living in Arizona for 20 years now. As family we love exploring our state with hiking and camping. There are still a lot to explore. My daughter graduated from ACP High School, and my son is in ACP Middle School. So, CUSD is our family tradition. I love playing and watching soccer whenever I get a chance.
My Education and Professional Background
I finished college back in Turkey with BS degree in Math Education. I have two master's degrees: MS in Math Education from NAU and M. Ed. from ACE. Currently, I am pursuing my EDD at Capella University with a focus on Curriculum and Instruction. I worked in public charter schools as a Mathematics teacher, Assistant Principal, College Counselor and Principal before CUSD. This is my third year at COA.
My Educational Philosophy
I believe that every child can learn and excel with the right support from school, family and the community.
