Hello and Welcome! I am Camen Buchanan and I am your resource math teacher for the 2020-2021 school year.
This is my first year as a Kyrene teacher and my second year as a Kyrene parent. My children attend Manitas and Paloma elementary schools. I am also the parent of an exceptional student, so I know what it is like to be on both sides of the table at IEP meetings. Before coming to Kyrene, I taught resource math and study strategies at Arcadia High School. Before that, I taught middle school resource math and study strategies for 6 years at Sunset Ridge Middle School in West Jordan, Utah. I recently earned my National Board of Professional Teaching Standards certification in Exceptional Needs.
When I am not at school, I enjoy reading, cooking, baking with my kids, taking road trips with my family, being in the mountains and fishing with my kids.
A few of my favorite things:
* After 8 years in Utah, I love the mountains and being outdoors.
* I am an Arizona native and prefer blue and red to maroon and gold.
* My favorite movies are "Breakfast at Tiffany's" and "Star Wars"
* I love chocolate, coffee and pizza.
