Hello, my name is Jim Conner. I am so excited to teach math to the middle school scholars here at Sun Valley Academy. It’s been over a decade of teaching in public education but I have worked with youth for more than 25 years in various capacities, such as Sunday School Teacher, Church Youth Director and now Teacher. I’ve taught as a fulltime educator, mostly technology and math in Mesa, Peoria, Coolidge and now Laveen. I moved here in 1992 with my wife of 25+ years. I am a proud father of 2 girls. One daughter is a Banker at Wells Fargo and the other is a professional singer as well as works for DHL. I love God first and foremost and my wife is my first ministry. Some of my favorite activities when I am not working are: hanging out with family, online radio, serving the community, serving God and of course working with our youth. I look forward to working with all of the middle school scholars and their families. Feel free to contact me with any questions, comments, or concerns. I am excited to be here at Sun Valley Academy and to partner with you to help our scholars be all they can be.
