Hello, my name is Tony Elmer. I am the principal at Carson Junior High School.  I am native to Arizona and grew up near the copper mines of the Miami/Globe area (Go Vandals!).  Over the past 23 years, my experiences in education have ranged from being the Team Leader here at Carson to teaching junior high and high school mathematics to also teaching educational leadership courses with Grand Canyon University. Most of those years have been spent right here in Mesa. I spent time teaching on the San Carlos Apache Indian Reservation, Superior Jr/Sr High School, Globe High School, Liberty School, Red Mountain High School and Smith Jr. High. I was the principal at Liberty School for one year. I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from Northern Arizona University, as well as, a Master’s degree in Educational Leadership from NAU. I have also earned a Ph.D. from Madison University.  My wife teaches 2nd grade ELD at Edison Elementary here in Mesa and we have four wonderful kids, two of them are grown and out of the house.  I look forward to serving as your principal with another outstanding year at Carson Jr. High.
