Hello!  I'm Sara Arnold.  This is my forth year at CDO High School and I'm excited to be here!

This school year we will face challenges as we as a community weather this pandemic.  Depending on the circumstances and needs, the classroom may change.  Distance or in-person learning, we will strive to keep our heads up and keep learning.

About Me:

As a graduate student, I researched optical diagnostics of high energy density plasma.  However, when I finished my masters thesis, I found that I enjoyed teaching physics more than physics research.  So I went back to school to become a teacher.  I am currently working on a PhD in Teaching and Teacher Education at the University of Arizona.

I LOVE superheroes and science fiction!  I admit, part of my inspiration to pursue Physics came from watching Star Trek.


Remember: With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility.  AND Live long and prosper!
