Mr. Beranek
Physical Education

My name is Kyle Beranek. I am the K-4 Character Education Teacher and 5-8 Teen Leadership Teacher at Copper Basin. I enjoy working with children and helping them reach for their dreams through their education. I believe every child should be valued and treated with respect. An education should empower a child and help him or her make a positive contribution to our world.

 I have been in education for over 10 years with a 3 year break in Juvenile Corrections with Maricopa County. During my teaching experience I have had the pleasure to be a 3rd, 4th and 5th grade classroom teacher along with teaching Physical Education to K-8th graders.

 I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education and a Master’s Degree in Physical Education, both of which were earned from Arizona State University.

 My wife and I have a 4 year old, “handful” of joy, son named Colton and a 6 year old Miniature Pincher named Pixie. We enjoy spending our time together with various activities including: camping, attending sporting events and anything to do with horses.

 I left the best for last. I am originally from Wisconsin so I love all types of cheese and of course, THE GREEN BAY PACKERS! GO PACK GO!!


Ms. Moore

Ms. Bishop

Hello, my name is Roberta Bishop and I am the librarian for Copper Basin K-8. I received my teaching degree from Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, TX. I can remember growing up I couldn’t wait for summer so I could go to the library and get books to read. I also enjoy music where I have been fortunate to teach music at Circle Cross Ranch along with teaching piano and voice in Arizona as well as in Florida. Teaching students to acquire a love of reading thereby opening up a whole world of wonder is a goal of mine for this school year. I also have the opportunity to co-teach choir at the school, which has been wonderful.
