Hello, my name is Tony Elmer. I am the Team Leader at Carson Junior High School. I am native to Arizona and grew up near the copper mines of the Miami/Globe area.
Over the past 16 years, my experiences in education have ranged from teaching junior high and high school mathematics, to teaching educational leadership courses at the university level. 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 spent one year as principal at Liberty School. 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 is a 2nd grade teacher and we have four wonderful children. My oldest is a Freshman in college playing football for Eastern Arizona College. I have a 15 year old daughter who loves to play softball, but she finds time to dance and enjoys being a teenager. Our youngest son is three and I really think he has learned to rule the house. We have just added a new addition to the home as we have a new baby girl in the house, she likes to eat and sleep.
I look forward to another great year at Carson Jr. High. There isn't a better place to be!
