Q: What is your position at Red Mountain? What do you do on a daily basis?

Q: Why did you choose Red Mountain?

Rodriguez: I came to Red Mountain from Salk Elementary. However, I have loved Red Mountain since my own children attended from the years 2000-2006. More than anything I wanted to work here because of the staff.

Q: What made you decide to be a teacher?

Thompson: My dad was a social worker in a public school, and I would go to work with him. It helped develop my love for teaching. I always liked helping others and my favorite teacher was my middle school math teacher.

Q: What is your favorite thing about teaching?

Thompson: I love working with students and see their progress and watch their confidence grow. This is especially true for teaching math. Over the years, I have also really enjoyed coaching/sponsoring extracurricular activities. It is fun to get to know students in a setting other than in a math class.

Q: What is your favorite thing about teaching?

Buckley: Working with young adults as they get ready to leave high school and enter the “real world” where their actions and decisions can have a profound impact.
