7th/8th Grade Social Studies

Mr. Spoto

Hello Westar, my name is Jason Spoto and I am happy to be joining the Comet family for the 2017-18 school year. As a brief introduction and background, this is my 12th year as an educator teaching students of all ages and learning styles/abilities. My experiences range from U.S. History, World Geography, Government, and Economics. Ultimately, I believe that students grow when they're comfortable and willing to express their opinions hence the reason I keep an open door and encourage all students to engage.

Transplanted to Arizona in 2005, I am originally from Jamestown, New York and have a love for all things outdoors including camping, hiking, fishing, etc. Though I enjoy playing all sports my collegiate exposure was in baseball & hockey. I attempt to make my class much like a sporting event, competitive, fun, structured, and completely inclusive. I look forward to teaching your child and instilling the value of lifelong learning!
