Cave Creek Unified School District
2016 Teacher of the Year

Krista Quinn
Special Education Teacher
Sonoran Trails Middle School

Throughout the years, I had the pleasure of watching Ms. Quinn orchestrate lessons for her students with special needs spanning a huge continuum of services. She plans co-taught classes with colleagues where all students in the class truly just believe they have two teachers (and great ones at that). She plans and leads classes for our students who need more assistance in meeting grade level English Language Arts skills. She also plans and teaches “Essential Skills” classes for students who need help with study skills or organization. This is just during the school year. During the summer, Ms. Quinn leads a high school jump start class for any and all students interested in improving their study and organizational skills for high school. Beyond her instructional work, Ms. Quinn serves as the department chair and mentor for our Special Education Department. She also mentors other teachers offering her expertise in strategies to meet the needs of all learners. --Mr. Dolezal


Cave Creek Future Problem Solvers Victorious!

     On Saturday, April 16,  at ASU West, Future Problem Solvers from Cave Creek had a glorious sweep at the State Bowl for the 12th year running! From Sonoran Trails in the Middle Division (7 - 9 grades), the team (consisting of Bennett Allen, Jessica Brashear, Ryland Davidson and Molly Thigpen) won first place in the Global Issues Problem Solving writing category and also 2nd place in the skit category. Jackson Henry, Maya King, Keagan Neff and Sammy O'Connor took 2nd place in Global Issues writing and 1st place in skits. Dylan Heideman, Sage Lewis, Annelies Vander Jagt and Emily Watters took 3rd in both the writing and skits.

     As a result of the writing-category wins in Global Issues Problem Solving, the 1st and 2nd place teams along with 2 students from the 3rd place team will compete against contenders from almost all 50 states plus 17 different countries at the International Conference at Michigan State University in Lansing, Michigan this  June. The topic they will be targeting at the international competition is "Energy of the Future."
