I have experienced the Kyrene School District from many different aspects for the past 26 years. I was once a Kyrene kid and today I am a Kyrene parent and a Kyrene teacher. I proudly teach seventh-grade science at Akimel A-al Middle School. I have always been a Kyrene fan, but my loyalty and trust in the district has been strengthened immensely during this last school year. In November I was honored by the Arizona Educational Foundation when they named me one of their Educators for Excellence. In this role I have visited several districts around the state and met many teachers, administrators and parent leaders. The common theme when I meet someone new is how wonderful a district Kyrene is.
