About Robin J. Engel
Born and raised in New York, I moved west in 1987 (and I still don't like the heat). After my first career, electronics, I stayed home to raise my 2 children, one boy and one girl, for 10 years, before finishing my degree in education and entering the classroom in 1996. Eclectic in my approach to life, I have taught high school, 5th grade, professional development, and finally...what I'd wanted all along...gifted students full time. I love this job, this school, and mostly, I love the kids.
I believe that learning should be fun and challenging; I attempt to make it both. Go Coyotes!
To me, life is a smorgasbord; I endeavor to taste all of its fruits. I have flown on the trapeze, traveled through 24 countries, hiked the grand canyon rim to rim...the list goes on. But, the most rewarding of life's challenges are being a mom and a teacher.
