Hi. My name is David Speers, and I am a credit recovery English teacher for Casa Grande Union High School. I have a bachelor’s degree in Liberal Arts with a minor in English. I have master’s degrees in Theology, Educational Leadership, and Curriculum and Instruction (Language Arts). I have taught for more than 25 years, and I have been a faculty member in the CGUHS District since 2000. One of the reasons I have always enjoyed teaching is that I have always enjoyed learning. Also, teaching is replete with challenges. No two days are alike, no two students are alike, and there’s always a chance to learn new things or refine one’s knowledge of things already known. If I motivate students to love learning, reading, writing, and problem-solving, then doors will open for them as they continue into adulthood.
