Mr. Jason Girnius

I'm originally from New York where I grew up, attended high school, and went to college.  I attended the State University of Albany from 1990 - 1995.  I majored in Business and Math, and played basketball during my 5 years as a Great Dane.  I moved to Arizona during the summer of 1995 and I've been here ever since.  This is my 26th year as a high school math teacher.  I was at Desert Mountain high school in Scottsdale for 7 years and this is my 19th year at Mountain Ridge.  My wife, Danielle, is a school psychologist in the Deer Valley Unified School District and we have three wonderful children.  Madison is 20 years old and is a junior at Fresno Pacific University, where she is playing volleyball and studying Pre-Health Sciences. Braedon is 19 years old and is a sophomore at Arizona State University, where he is studying to become a pilot.  Ethan is 15 years old and is a 10th grader here at Mountain Ridge HS.  We also have 1 cat, Baxter, and 4 dogs; Belle,Willow, Bailey, and Goose.
