Learning During School Closures
Thank you for your patience and understanding in this time. We are all learning new processes, procedures, and expectations. We'll get through this as a team.
Hello AMS family! My name is Jennifer Riggle, this is my second year with the Academy of Math and Science. I am excited to be part of the brand new online Advanced Virtual Academy (AMS AVA) as an eighth grade science teacher. My previous educator experience includes 10+ years tutoring in high school AVID programs, 1 year working with elementary level after school/summer school programs run by the Boys’ & Girls’ Club, and almost 5 years as a gallery interpreter (educator) with the Arizona Museum of Natural History.
I am originally from California, and I am a first generation college student. My parents did not go to college, nor did their parents. I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in General Geology/Geophysics from the University of California, Riverside in June 2014. It was a long and difficult road - but I am proud of the effort and determination I put in to make it through. I am excited about the opportunity to teach your young scholars.
