Welcome students back to school, and Freshmen and new students, welcome to Coconino High School. My name is Jeanette Chasan and this is my 3rd year teaching social studies, but my first year teaching at Coconino High School. This year I will be teaching 12th grade Government first semester and 12th grade Economics second semester as well as Freshmen Study Skills.
My family and I have been in Flagstaff just a little over a year and absolutely love the weather, even the snow. I'm originally a desert rat who was born and raised in Chandler, AZ and graduated from Arizona State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Communication back in nineteen ninety something. After graduation, I worked at a financial planning and investment firm for 10 years until after the birth of my 2nd son. After both my boys were in school, I volunteered often in their classrooms and then started working at their schools. Eventually we moved to Show Low, AZ where I became the high school librarian and then decided to get my teaching certification and started teaching. I have been married almost 19 years and have just the 2 sons, one is a sophomore at Flag High while the other is a freshman, here at Coconino. I also have 12 nieces and nephews as well as 2 great nephews. We also have a 7 year old dog named "Chewy" (short for Chewbacca) that we’ve had since he was a puppy. Unfortunately, he is enthralled by skunks and manages to get sprayed at least once a year.
To be honest, I did not enjoy history as a teen because the focus was on memorizing events and dates but not understanding and realizing the effects of these events. The older I get the more exciting and fascinating I find history. It is amazing how decisions, both good and bad, that were made 100 years ago still affect us today, especially within our government. I am excited to be your teacher this year and show you how exciting our nation's past can be. I want to show you that history is so much more than remembering dates and battles. For those of you who will be taking Study Skills with me, I look forward to helping you fine tune your note taking and studying skills. These skills are so valuable and will help you be more successful throughout high school and beyond. I am looking forward to everyone having a very successful and rewarding year!!
