Welcome to Mr. Curran's Neighborhood!
My Education and Professional Background
Mr. Curran's Educational Background: I received my Bachelor's Degree from ASU in 2004 in Secondary Education. I went on to receive my Yoga Teacher Certification in 2006, and my Master's Degree from NAU in Curriculum and Instruction in 2012. Mr. Curran's Professional Background: I began teaching at Desert Arroyo Middle School in 2004. After working there for two years, I decided I wanted to volunteer in a third world country, so I found my way to a teaching position in the Republic of the Marshall Islands from 2006-07. After returning from the Republic of the Marshall Islands I took my first position in the Chandler Unified School District at Chief Hill Learning Academy from 2008-12. Finally in 2012, I accepted a position at Bogle Junior High School.
