Mr. Erik Lutz
Hello! My name is Erik Lutz, and I am so honored and excited to have the privilege of teaching your student. This is my third year as a Coyote! I couldn't ask for a better environment or group of students to teach/coach. I am currently entering my 7th year of teaching.
I am a Tempe, Arizona native, and I feel blessed to be able to be a part of the great educational programs we have here at Skyline High School and my home state. I am a graduate of McClintock High School in Tempe. I have been extremely fortunate to have had an assortment of great people help me along the way during my teaching career, and many of the most influential have been right here at Skyline. We have an amazing Social Studies department with people that truly care about education, and most importantly, the KIDS. Also, I am lucky to continue the tradition of teaching in the Lutz family, as my mom is entering her 20th year as a Kindergarten teacher, and my younger sister has joined the "dark side" and is teaching her 1st year of 2nd grade.
I am an avid baseball + basketball fan, and I enjoy all sports, actually being nicknamed "SportsCenter" in high school, and originally pursuing journalism classes at ASU. Go Devils!
Besides sports, learning is truly my passion. I have my Bachelor's Degree from ASU in Sec. Ed- History and my Master's from Capella University in Educational Leadership with plans to enter administration sometime in the near future. When I am not learning more about history, I value spending time with my family, my friends, my fiance, and our dog, Daisy.
I also hit the slopes and beat the heat at Sunrise whenever I get the chance.
I believe that one of the most important things to do is to immerse yourself fully and discover what makes you wanna get up in the morning.
