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!
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:
I graduated from Northern Arizona University and received my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education. I have three endorsements in the areas of Language Arts, Mathematics, and Structured English Immersion. This is my 5th year in the Chandler Unified School District.
 
 
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.

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.

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.

It is my philosophy that the study of music connects us to being human. “We are the music makers, we are the dreamers of dreams” Arthur O’Shaunessy

Educational Background:
The 19-20 school year is my first year with Chandler Online Academy. I am a proud graduate of Phoenix College where I received my degree in Sign Language Interpreting. After a career as an interpreter for over 8 years, I obtained my B.A in Education from Ottawa University and a Masters Degree in School Counseling. I have been teaching for over 10 years and enjoy every minute of it!
 
 
Educational Philosophy:
I believe that every child has the right to receive the best education possible. I believe that the special people chosen to provide that education must make sure everything they teach, say, do and believe comes from the heart. I believe that along with education comes personal growth, self respect, and respect for others and a yearning for knowledge that stays an entire lifetime. I feel that a great teacher learns just as much from each of their students than their students learn from them. I believe that a successful classroom is a classroom that doesn't know the difference between work and fun, their work IS fun. A successful teacher doesn't teach to a book, they teach to the day. They are flexible, energetic, understanding and seize each day as a new opportunity to impact the lives of their students.

Educational Background:
I received my B.A. in Secondary Education with an emphasis in History from Arizona State University. My experience in education runs 12 years across Junior High and High School in many districts where I have had the opportunity to learn and grow from fantastic administrators, colleagues, and students of all backgrounds.

An engaged classroom is goal number one. My class is not inextricably bound to someone else's schedules or someone else's ideas, but rather is dependent upon the people that comprise it. I see myself as the facilitator of the room and work to create a student-centered environment where the students lead. Therefore, developing historical skills is emphasized and those skills are used to effectively and responsibly explore the historical and political topics that arise within class.

I completed my Physical Education endorsement in 2017. I spent the first 4 years of my teaching career teaching Kindergarten and 1st grade in my hometown of Spokane, Washington before moving to Chandler. I began teaching in Chandler 2011 where I taught 3rd grade for 6 years and now coach Physical Education at Andersen Junior High, and I have been with Chandler Online Academy since 2018. I could not be more honored to work for such an amazing district. Being a lifelong learner who is dedicated to education is engrained in every fiber of who I am!
 
 
Educational Philosophy:
I believe that every child has the ability to learn in their own way and it is my goal to honor the individual needs of each child. I have high standards for students and what they can achieve in the classroom. They are supported in meeting those standards through a variety of teaching methods in which I can honor the strengths of each child. It is my deepest passion to help shape well-round, whole-hearted, critical thinkers who have the passion and desire to make a difference in the world. To do this I teach kids to take responsibility for their actions, set goals and work hard to achieve them, see the good in others and find ways to honor their own strengths, and be team players in our community. Having these skills along with the academics that thye learn though the curriculum creates a culture that thrives on learning and supporting each other, that is safe and honest, that creates and molds big dreams, and that provides a ton of success for each student.
