My name is Patricia Dinsmore and I am an Instructional Coach at the Academy of Math and Science Glendale. This is my 2nd year as an instruction coach at AMSG.
I graduated from the University of Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania. I have been in the educational field for 34 years and cannot imagine doing anything else!
I lived, and taught, over seas for 6 years, and believe that those experiences were very beneficial to my role as a teacher/instructor. Due to my time overseas, I am TEFL and TEFL-C certified. I have 8+ years experience as an ESL teacher. 
I moved to Phoenix, in June 2019, from New Orleans, Louisiana. I was thrilled to be given the opportunity to work at AMSG. My husband and I packed up our school bus and moved from New Orleans to Phoenix, with out so much as a glance back, because I knew AMSG was the place I needed to be!
In my spare time I love to travel, write, read, bake, bike with my husband, and walk our two adorable cats (Frodo and Felix) on leashes around the park we live in.
I am excited to be working with your scholars at AMSG!
