Hello, my name is Jimmy Ray and I’m excited to be part of the San Tan Charter School family. This year I will be starting my 25th school year as a mathematics teacher. I enjoy helping students utilize their problem-solving skills and find enjoyment while doing so.
I graduated from Arizona State University in 1996 with a Bachelors's degree in elementary education with a math specialization. I went back to school to complete my Masters's 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 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 12 compete. My oldest daughter, Felicia age 20, is a combat medic in the U.S. Army. She has deployed to South Korea and is stationed at Ft. Hood in Texas.
