Hello! My name is Karessa Armstrong. I am extremely thrilled to be the 7th-12th Culinary/FACS Teacher here at San Tan Power Campus. I have a 2-year-old son Bowen Boggs who attends the Montessori here at San Tan Charter School. Bowen and I along with his father Brandon love to spend our free time out doors with our animals or anywhere that there is water that we can swim in. We also enjoy cooking together in the evenings after work, Bowen is definitely the head chef of the house.
I was born in Scottsdale, Arizona but at the age of 2 moved to Payson, Arizona where I went to school K-12th and attended a college culinary program through NAVIT (Northern Arizona Vocational Institute of Technology). After finishing school, I moved with my family to Gilbert, Arizona where I pursued my passion in the Culinary industry as the Catering Director at Zappone’s Italian Bistro.
While working as the Catering Director I would also substitute teach on my off days, this is where I fell in love with educating children. I am extremely excited to start my full time teaching journey here at San Tan Charter School in the field that I am truly passionate about. I truly could not have chosen a better community and staff to be a part of.
