Hello! My name is Richard Weyker. I am the Social Studies Department Chair for Sandra Day O'Connor High School. I teach AP Macroeconomics/AP Government, POS 110 (a Dual Enrollment cource through Rio Sallado College) Economics and Government. In addition to teaching I sponsor the Model U.N. club. For Pathways I will be teaching Economics and Government.
I was born and raised in Tucson, Arizona. I moved to Phoenix 8 years ago to begin a career in education after graduating from University of Arizona with a Bachelors in Political Science and a Masters in Teaching and Teacher Education.
I love to read everything that I can. I play the guitar (although not very well, if you ask me how long I have played I will lie). I love to travel, my most recent trip was to Spain and I am hoping to hike Machu Picchu next.
I have never worked a job in my life that I have found as fullfilling as teaching. Sandra Day O'Connor High School has provided an amazing environment to grow and develope the craft of being an educator. I'm excited for the opportunity everyday brings to be a postive influence on my students.
