Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Colin Cordell
My name is Colin Cordell and I am excited to join the Innovation Academy 5th grade team. This will be my 17th year teaching, and my second in Amphi. I have taught kindergarten, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, and 8th grades previously. I have taught fully self-contained classes as well as a subject expert in science, math, language arts, and physical education.
Defining moment in education:
In 1998 I was awarded a Gold Key for best sports story and layout for my work on the 1998 Salpointe Catholic High School yearbook. That taught me that hard work and trust in the writing process pays off.
