About Ambur Jones...
Position: Math Teacher
I am very excited for another year filled with math!! This is my 18th year teaching math! I have been at Hamilton for the last 17 years, and I am excited to be a part of Casteel this year!!
My Education and Professional Background
I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Secondary Education in Mathematics from Arizona State University in May of 2005 and my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction at the Secondary Level from Northern Arizona University in May of 2007.
I am originally from Lake Havasu City, Arizona. I moved to the valley in 2003. I have four fun-loving kids; Kolbi (12), Zaden(10), Manex (8), and Kamble (6). Our family enjoys traveling, watching movies, going to amusement parks, hanging out with family, and playing games. We stay busy with their sports - soccer, gymnastics, basketball, etc.
My Educational Philosophy
It is my goal to provide the opportunity for my students to think critically and be a problem solver. Learning is a lifelong process full of new discoveries, as well as recalling past lessons. In addition to teaching mathematics, I want to positively impact the lives of my students. I want to help ALL of my students to feel and be successful!!
