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!Sincerely,Heather A. Fazio
