    Welcome to Coach Bailey's class page. This is my 14th year of teaching. I am looking forward to working with my sophmores in English Language Arts in my sixth year here at Perry and my seniors via the Chandler Online Academy. I am also a varsity assistant football coach here at Perry and I coach boys soccer at Payne Junior High. Please contact me via email if you have any questions, problems, or concerns this school year.

    My Education and Professional Background

    I am a native of Arizona and attended Mesa High School. I have taught English Language Arts and coached football for the past fourteen years at Chandler, Poston Butte, and Florence High Schools before I came to Perry. I graduated from the University of Utah with a Bachelor's degree in English and I have a Master's in Education from Arizona State University in Currciculum and Instruction.

    My Personal Background

    I have been married twenty years to my undeniably brilliant, absolutely gorgeous, long-suffering, patient wife, Licia. We love to travel, go to bookstores, movies, concerts, baseball games, and love the sunny life of Arizona with our dog.


    Educational Philosophy

    I have three major statements that guide my own educational philosophy:
    1. Question everything and always think critically.
    2. Realize that you can never know it all.
    3. Never stop learning.
