• 2014



        Welcome to Hamilton! My name is Marsha Coburn, and I teach Honors English 9, Avid, and sponsor the Student Council. I have a comprehensive major in English from Bradley University in Peoria,Illinois and a Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Development from Northern Arizona University. My husband, John, and I have raised 3 children in the Chandler Schools, all of whom graduated from Pepperdine University and currently have five grandchildren, Tyson, age 5; McKenna, age 3; and Caleb and Bria, age 2; and Addison, age 1. Our second home is in Overgaard, AZ where I like to read, hike, ride ATV's, and cook in the cool pines. I love reading, but need to reserve this pleasure for breaks, or it overtakes my life.

     My passion beyond my family includes my church, Chandler Christian Church, and travel. In regards to travel, I have been in 49 states, missing Delaware, and have traveled in many countries.

    My teaching career began in Illinois where I taught English and speech at Kaneland HS in Maple Park, Illinois. I also taught English at Greenway HS in Phoenix when I first moved to Arizona. Then I briefly taught at Willis Jr. High before I helped to open Hamilton. We are beginning our 17thyear;  the entire staff is so proud of this school that we have helped build.

    I have served as the Student Council Sponsor in every high school where I have taught. I started working for the Illinois Association of Student Councils as a Junior in high school student later working in both the Junior and Senior high camps. I also worked in the same capacities in the Arizona High School and Junior High Camps, which my husband and I started. I continue to attend and work Arizona Student Council camps and workshops. As the Student Council sponsor, I am busy with pep assemblies, dances, spirit weeks, fund raisers and charity drives, which help me keep your children aware of the Hamilton social and athletic calendars

    I look forward to our journey this year.
