My name is Jacqueline East and this is my third year teaching at Higley! I teach both 10th Grade English and AVID 9/10. I taught 7th Grade English in Glendale for a semester before realizing High School is my true passion. I was born in Plano, Texas and moved to Chandler when I was 7 years old. I graduated from Basha High School and received my Bachelor’s Degree from Northern Arizona University in Secondary English Education and my Master's from Grand Canyon University in Reading (Secondary).
I have a beautiful brindle Boxer named Sophie, a lab mix named Rosco and a German Shepard mix named Barley. I love spending time with them outside or traveling. I also love to spend time with family and friends, snowboard, watch documentaries, read and learn new skills.
