My name is Jon Bradley Garber, I go by Bradley. This is my
fifth year teaching at Copper Basin. I went to elementary school through high
school in upstate New York in the Susquehanna Valley School District. I
earned my Associates degree in science from CGCC. From there I
transferred to ASU and earned my Bachelors in Special/Elementary education. I
taught special education for my first three years and the last two I have
taught 7th grade math and a section of pre-algebra. I have been the boys’ soccer
coach for the past two years and also am the 7th grade trip facilitator as well
as co-student council advisor. My wife is also a teacher at Circle Cross Ranch.
We really like being on the same schedule so we are able to spend time
together. We love being outside hiking, camping, trail running, and being
involved in the trail running community. We are both currently working on our
Master’s degrees in Curriculum and Instruction with Technology integration
which we will finish in May. We love teaching and being involved with the
students and their families. We are both excited to see what the future brings.

do every day. I love education and I have fun while teaching. My philosophy for
learning is that each child is unique, and each child learns in a different
way. One of my tasks, as a teacher, is to help your children discover their individuality
and to work alongside them to maximize all of their capabilities to learn.

My name is Sol Aguilar, I started my career as a Work Coach for kids
and young adults with disabilities, where I spent over 5 years coaching them on
how to be as independent as they could be. From there I worked a few years
managing CNA’s who took care of Senior citizens. After having my fourth child, my
husband and I decided that it was time for me to take a break and stay how with
the kids. Now that they are older I have decided to go back to work. The time I
have spent as a lunch monitor and crossing guard at Copper Basin has shown me
that I enjoy being in a school setting and helping our youth with their development
and growth. It has also motivated me to get my substitute teaching certificate
and go back to school to get my bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and
