Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Mr. Wilson and I teach Earth and Space Science here at Mountain Ridge High School. You can find me in room E214.
I am a graduate of Arizona State University (Forks up!) with a Bachelor of Arts in Secondary Education, Earth and Space Sciences. I am currently pursuing my Masters at NAU. My passion for how the natural world operates and how living things affect and are affected by the Earth allows me to bring that energy into the classroom to help young minds gain an awareness of the big, huge world they live in and are just getting to know. Hopefully, with this awareness and knowledge, my students will be empowered to make Earth-conscious decisions no matter where they go in life.
My passions also flow out into other fields, and I have a deep appreciation for how each part of our natural world- from the smallest molecule to the biggest mammal- plays a part in the system called Earth.
On a personal level, I am not native to Arizona, but rather have moved around quite a bit in my life. I do call Arizona home, but have lived in California, Washington, Utah, and (most recently) Texas. My favorite things about Arizona are the ample things to do! Whether it is finding a mountain to hike, going up to the mountains, fishing in the canyon lakes, golfing, going to a D-backs game or just trying somewhere new to eat, I find myself quite busy on the weekends.
I am engaged to be married to my wonderful fiance Amanda in the fall, and our goofy cattle dog Lilo just lives for treats and road trips!
It is exciting to be here at Mountain Ridge High School, and I hope the year is as good for you as it will be for me! Go Mountain Lions!
