Welcome to Chandler High School! My name is Mrs. Culver and I am thrilled to be part of your son/daughters educational experience. I have been married to my husband Jim for 10 years and we have one son. I have been teaching at Chandler High since 2000; before that I worked at Valley Recycling Inc. as a Recycling Coordinator for two years. Teaching is a passion of mine and I am honored and thrilled to be your son/daughters teacher this year.
My Education and Professional Background
I was born and raised in Minnesota. I received my BA from the University of Wisconsin-Madison (Go Badgers!) in Geography and Environmental Science. I also received my teaching certificate at the University of Phoenix, my MA in Curriculum and Instruction from Northern Arizona, as well as participated in the Science and Math Pathways program and the GK-12 program from ASU. I am active in teaching inclusion classes as well as a trained AVID instructor. I have been teaching since July 2000 teaching teaching Earth and Space Science, Advance Earth and Space Science, Investigative Science, 10th grade AVID, and AP Environmental Science. In addition, I have had 6 years experience working within an inclusion class setting. I have had experience in public speaking at state inclusion conventions, leading staff development in-services on inclusion teaching, writing state standard crosswalks for CTE & Science education, as well as experience in district standard writing.
My Educational Philosophy
I see myself as a facilitator of learning that provides enriching activities in an effort to enhance my student’s strengths and works on strengthening their weakness. I encourage students to embark on a journey of discovering and learning for themselves and to get excited about science!
