6th Grade Mathematics
Miss Stites attended James Irwin Charter Schools for middle and high school. After graduating, she attended Grand Canyon University for Educational Studies. She worked for James Irwin for 9 years. She started working at James Irwin Charter Academy as a first-grade assistant. From there she taught third grade, fifth grade, and gym for the Academy. Miss Stites says, “Working for James Irwin Charter Middle School has been an amazing experience and I have loved every minute of it”. As a teacher, she strives to encourage students to do their best and to be the best person they can be. “Not only are the academics at this school important but character is not only valued and taught but it is expected from both staff and students”. Finding a school that is like James Irwin is rare and she wouldn’t trade it for the world. As a former student, Miss Stites can understand the struggles students may face and wants to help students through them.
