Welcome! My name is Valerie Cichy and I teach economics. I’m really excited to be part of the Westwood community!
A little about myself: I grew up in Mesa and graduated from high school in 2002. After which, I earned multiple associate’s degrees from Mesa Community College in 2004. Then, I graduated from Arizona State University in 2006. From there, beginning my teaching career, while I also complete my Master’s in Education from Northern Arizona University in 2012 and participating in the Teaching American History Grant from 2008-2011. Since then, I have continued in my love of learning in a variety of ways, including different national programs, which support my love for traveling (any excuse for a road trip to hit the open road is a bonus!).
