Welcome to Chandler Online Academy!

Educational Background:

I have a Masters Degree in Administration and I graduated from ASU with a Bachelors Degree in Spanish and Physical Education. I began teaching in 1987 in Phoenix and in Chandler in 2004. I have lived in various Spanish speaking countries and encourage students to travel as well.

Educational Philosophy:

My educational philosophy is that every student can learn and can speak Spanish. I enjoy teaching and speaking Spanish and I think our classroom and school should be enjoyable. I want students to give 100 percent and I will make their effort worth my 100 percent as a teacher. I value education and I think public education is where students learn from each other and teachers to get a total life education.

Welcome to 7th and 8th grade math and language arts! My name is Mrs. Griffiths. When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my two kiddos. My son's name is Logan and he is 7 years old. My daughter's name is Raelynn and she is 2 years old. Together, my family and I enjoy hiking, swimming, playing soccer, and trying out new recipes in the kitchen.

Educational Background:

Educational Philosophy:

Teachers, educational institutions, and curriculum provide unique avenues for students to be stretched, edified, and strengthened by their learning experiences. Often times students ask, "Why do I need to know this? I'll never use this in 'real-life'." Though a specific concept I teach may not ever be revisited in a student's adult life, I know the experiences students encounter while attending school, (whether online or in-person), will teach them lessons that prepare them for the "real-world". They may experience failures that they may not feel they can push past. Yet, they will also feel success that will motivate them to do better, to be better, and to set new goals. Progress, no matter how small, drives my enthusiasm to teach. Every child, has the potential to grow. It is my goal to show them that they are capable of success.

Welcome!

Welcome to Chandler Online Academy! I am originally from Michigan, but am proud to call Arizona home. Some of my favorite things to do are spend time with friends and family, play and watch any/all sports, travel, and work out. I have a lifetime goal to be a contest on "Wheel of Fortune." I'm looking forward to a great year!

Educational Background:

I graduated from Hope College in Holland, Michigan with a Bachelor's degree in English and Kinesiology. I began teaching in Florida in 2010, where my district awarded me the First Year Teacher of the Year Award. I've been teaching in CUSD since 2011, first at Santan Junior High, and then I moved to Casteel for its inaugural year in 2015.

Educational Philosophy:

I believe every child is capable of learning, and it's my job to provide them with a safe, supportive environment in which to do so. Encouraging students to persevere and providing them with the tools and assistance to push themselves past what they believe they're capable of is important to me. I will help all students grow--academically, personally, and physically--throughout the year, and will instill in them the importance of becoming lifelong learners and living a healthy lifestyle.

Welcome to Chandler Online Academy

Educational Background:

On my way to Tucson in 1984 I ran out of gas in Tempe and decided to stay. I received both a Bachelor of Fine Arts (1987) and a Masters of Education in Educational Media & Computers (1997) from Arizona State, both were years ASU made a Rose Bowl appearance. I have taught high school art since 2005 and computer graphics at Chandler-Gilbert Community College since 2000. I feel Chandler has the most challenging and robust fine arts programs in the East Valley. The 18-19 school year will be my 1st year with Chandler Online Academy.

Educational Philosophy:

I believe study in the visual arts challenges students to think creatively, develop intuition, and become visual problem-solvers. I have found the method of facilitating rather than dictating to be a highly beneficial style of teaching. I adjusting my teaching practices as appropriate, on the basis of observation and with knowledge of a student's interests, abilities, skills, knowledge, and family circumstances. I'm grateful to be able to work with Chandler High students and will continue to strive to be a positive influence in their lives.

Welcome to Chandler Online Academy

Educational Background:

Educational Philosophy:

There is something for everyone. This philosophy of teaching hits every learner. Not everyone learns the same or is interested in the same thing. It is important for our learners to think like historians, not like Jeopardy contestants. In treating our classroom like a lab for historians, our students can find something that they are interested in. Allowing student choice is a huge portion of my educational philosophy. Giving students choice allows them to explore what they have interest in, thus History is so rich that it allows students to go off into their own part of it, what they are engaged in. When we look at the continuance of our democracy, we look at the citizen’s ability to effectively participate in that process. Knowing your stance, having the ability to look at the opposition, and defend your opinion with evidence that is valid is the cornerstone of democracy.
