     Welcome!

     

    Welcome to Coach Bailey's class page. I am looking forward to working with my sophmores in English Language Arts this year. I was also a varsity assistant football coach here at Perry and coach 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 eleven 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 have earned a Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Arizona State University. I have been married eighteen 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 two dogs, Murphy and Fenway.

     

    Educational Phiosophy

     
    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.
