    About Ms. Fazio

    Dear Parents and Students,
    Hi!  My name is Heather Fazio.  I am your new Seventh Grade English Language Arts instructor.  I am so excited to be a part of your student’s education!

    I am an Arizona native!  I am a product of the Amphitheater School District in Tucson, AZ, where I grew up.  I am married and have a daughter and we live here in Ahwatukee.  I am entering my fifth year of teaching, and have experience teaching both in person and and online environment.

    I have an undergraduate degree in English from the University of California at Berkeley, where I was also an NCAA Div. I All-American swimmer.  After undergraduate school, I attended the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law, at Arizona State University.  I worked for both the United States District Court, in Arizona, and the Arizona Court of Appeals, as a law clerk.  I then worked for several years as a civil litigator, in Arizona and Nevada, before deciding on a career change to teaching.

    This is my fourth year at CMS.  I havde also taught at Mountain Pointe High School and Primavera Online High School.  I am certified to teach English, Government, and History.  Communicating through language is my passion.  I strongly believe that it is the foundation for success in all academic disciplines.

    I look forward to being able to teach your student about the power of the written and spoken word in the year ahead!

    Heather A. Fazio
