Welcome to Casteel High School! I have provided links that will assist in answering questions and provide online resources that will help broaden your understanding of mathematics. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
My Education and Professional Background
2018-2019 will be my 11th year teaching in the Chandler Unified School District. I earned my Bachelor of Science in Business Marketing from the University of Phoenix in 2001. After working in finance and business development for the banking industry, I decided to return to school to pursue a career in education. I enrolled at Arizona State University and graduated with my Master of Education degree in 2008.
My Educational Philosophy
I believe that each of my students is a unique individual who needs a secure and stimulating atmosphere in which to grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically, and socially. It is my desire as an educator to help students meet their fullest potential in these areas by providing an environment that is safe, supports risk-taking, and invites a sharing of ideas. I believe that each of my students will have a deeper understanding of mathematics when given the opportunity to discover for themselves and practice skills in authentic situations. My goal is to have each student take ownership of what they are learning in the math curriculum and become motivated to work hard and achieve their personal, educational, and professional goals throughout life.
