Welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year!
My name is Mrs. Sperry, and I will be your English teacher this year. I want to start the year out by telling you a little bit about myself. I grew up in Mesa, Arizona. Unlike the Verde Valley, Mesa is a lower elevation and can be extremely hot in the summer. Much like the Verde Valley, Mesa provides a multitude of available recreational activities to choose from. I experienced many wonderful adventures as child growing up in what was once a small town.
I love being outdoors, particularly in the mountains. Biking, camping, backpacking, and hiking are just a few activities I enjoy. I especially like being in the White Mountains located in Northern Arizona, which has some of the most beautiful & best hiking I’ve experienced in this state.
Several years after high school, I decided to attend college. I went to ASU and attained my Bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice. After working in various positions for the State of Arizona, I decided to change careers and returned to college. I attended Ottawa University and earned my Post-back in secondary education. I returned to school, once again and obtained my Master’s degree. I absolutely fell in love with being an educator and have been teaching for over 20 years.
You are extremely fortunate to be part of a dedicated community that is committed to making sure you have a great school to attend. Reading and writing is a wonderful way to learn more about yourself and the world around you, so enjoy it. I look forward to inspiring and helping you discover how to succeed and pursue your goals. I am confident this will be a great year!
