Lynn Palacios | Instructional Coach | Rm 116 | 623.445.3024
Lynn is thrilled to be at BGHS this year, and to join the Bulldog Family! She comes to DVUSD after serving more than 30 years in Phoenix Union High School District, where she spent most of her time in the classroom, teaching English, History, Government, computer studies, and career preparation. She has served in classroom & student support capacities such as Technology Educator and Internship Program Manager. Over the course of her career she has worked with students at all high school grade levels and at all skill levels. In addition to her "day" job, she also teaches ENG102 online for Phoenix College, an adjunct position she's held since 2013. She loves literature, writing, reading about contemporary issues, crafting problem-based learning experiences for students, graphic design, and learning new things.
Beyond the school setting, Lynn is married to a former Spanish teacher, and has two adult children - her daughter, Darian, and her son, Trey. She has two dogs, the old man, Zuma (short for Montezuma), and the puppy, Zoey. She grew up in Alexandria, Minnesota - a beautiful community settled by Scandinavian immigrants and surrounded by lakes. Though she's been living in Arizona since graduating from college, she loves to visit family and friends in MN.
As an Instructional Coach this year, her goal is to provide resources and support to BGHS teachers. Using her classroom as a lab space, she hopes to help teachers by assisting with planning & management questions and instructional technology issues, and by offering a venue for them to practice lessons, capture video of their own instruction, and engage in peer dialogue about classroom concerns.
