Meet the Middle School Team
Welcome to Middle School at Biltmore Prep! I am Ms. Nolan and I am excited to start my 5th year here at BPA! This year I will be teaching Social Studies and Math to 6th graders, as well as Math to 7th grade. I am excited to get to know a new group of students and see where this year takes us all! I would like to be your teammate as you navigate through the world of Middle School with your child, so please reach out with any questions or concerns!
Greetings BPA Families! I am Jess Vasta and I have the pleasure of teaching your middle school student English Language Arts and Social Studies! I am originally from Upstate New York where I attended Keuka College and obtained my degree in general education and special education. I am currently finishing up my Masters degree in Educational Leadership. I moved to Arizona 5 years ago with my husband to begin my teaching career! I have taught in both general and special education classroom settings.
However, I have found a real passion for teaching ELA. I am an avid reader and I love being able to share my love of reading with my students. I also believe that all students learn and process information differently, so I offer flexible seating options and multi-modality assignments/projects in my classroom in order to ensure that everyone learns the way that best suits them! I look forward to getting to know your child and working closely with you.
Hi BPA Families! I have been a teacher for 29 years, 10 of them in Mexico and 19 in the United States. Prior to teaching, I was a water distribution and irrigation engineer in Mexico. This career provided me the appropriate tools and opportunities to use my own real-life experiences when teaching Science to my students
Regarding my teaching style, I love building relationships with my students and parents, as well as having fun while teaching, especially when my students complete hands-on projects.
I have a vast knowledge of the middle school science curriculum and great experience leading the school's science fair. I am looking forward to working at BPA this school year.
Greetings everyone! Born and raised in Phoenix, I am a graduate of Bourgade Catholic High School and NAU. I spent the first ten years of my career in the Cartwright District as a fourth grade teacher and a reading interventionist. Although I am bilingual now, I wasn't raised that way; a school trip to Spain hooked me and I haven't stopped learning since! I am constantly seeking opportunities to stretch my linguistic growth by talking in Spanish with native speakers, reading in Spanish, listening to Spanish, etc. Also, if anyone has any recommendations for telenovelas, please let me know! I'm excited to be a part of the Spanish Immersion program at Biltmore Prep.
With two young children (ages 3.5 and 1.5), I am passionate about making fun family memories. (And yes, the goal is to raise them bilingual as well!) I am also a big fan of yoga, dark chocolate, being outside, tea, reading cookbooks, listening to podcasts and NPR, and oral storytelling. My most recent accomplishment was participating in The Moth's Phoenix Storyslam this past June.
