My Why Story
Hello, my name is Jimmy Ray and I’m excited to join the San Tan Charter School family. This year I will be starting my 23rd school year as a mathematics teacher. I enjoy helping students utilize their problem solving skills and find enjoyment while doing so.
I graduated Arizona State University in 1996 with a Bachelors degree in elementary education with a math specialization. I went back to school to complete my Masters degree through Northern Arizona University. I have taught several levels of math throughout my career from junior high math to college algebra. I especially enjoy the algebra classes.
When I am not teaching I am coaching club softball for the All American Mizuno organization. I am also the self proclaimed World’s Greatest dance dad watching my young daughter Hayden age 11 compete. My oldest daughter, Felicia age 19, is a combat medic in the U.S. Army. She will be deployed to South Korea until next year.
