Ashley Jablonski - Elementary School Campus


Ashley Jablonski has been a huge asset to the AZACS team! She did all of the work teaching and leading the 3rd grade students through their first science fair, from start to finish. Everything from understanding how to formulate a hypothesis, to researching the experiment and finding materials. She has done an amazing job teaching science this year and adhering to the state standards for 3rd grade. We are happy to have her as part of our AZACS community!

Aarika De La Cruz - Upper School Campus


Aarika is a rising star at AZACS Upper Campus. She started with us as a phenomenal paraprofessional last year. She is working towards her degree in Special Education and has been ROCKING the roll of ABA Lead in our Math & Life Skills Classroom in the Functional Academic Program. Under guidance and supervision, she has brought math into real life practice for her students taking them to the next level! We're so thankful to have a passionate future teacher like Aarika working with our students each day.
