John Vasey, Middle School Project Based Learning

I was born in Tucson, Arizona and raised in San Diego, California.  My hobbies are golf and surfing, well, more golf than surfing in Arizona. 

I graduated from the University of Arizona with a Business degree in marketing and received my teaching certificate from Arizona State University.  I am a National Board Certified Teacher.  I have been teaching for twenty three years in Phoenix as a sixth and seventh grade math, language arts and science teacher.  My teaching philosophy is to learn the fundamentals through rigor and relevance and apply that learning to the future success of our students’ everyday lives.  This year, I will be teaching an Entrepreneurship class with a focus on business, economics, and community service.  I will do this by applying our Core Knowledge standards with field study experiences supported by our parents and the local business community.

Thank you for this opportunity to share in the education of your child and their successes.
