Ms. Morales
Instructional Coach

I have been teaching in Florence Unified District since 2011. I started as a biology teacher at Poston Butte High School.  Since then I have taught various levels of biology from STEM, honors, to AP biology.  Further, I have held positions such as PLC lead, TAP Mentor teacher, and last year I served as a TAP Master teacher.  My Bachelor's is in Secondary Education emphasis Biology from Arizona State University and my Master's is in Leadership and Policy Studies from the University of Texas at Arlington. Going into my 7th year, I will be taking on the role of instructional coach.  I am excited to work with the Copper Basin staff and students.

Ms. Drury
Hello! I’m Faith Drury and I’m the School Psychologist here at Copper Basin K-8.  This is my first year with FUSD and I’m excited to be a part of such a wonderful team of educators.  The staff and administration here at Copper Basin are a dedicated group of individuals that truly live the district’s mission of ‘students first’!  I am a native of St. Louis Mo, and have been an Arizona resident for 24 years.  I have served the exceptional student population for over 17 years in a variety of capacities and look forward to supporting the staff, students and families of Copper Basin K-8.  My belief is that each child is unique and we have been granted the awesome responsibility of understanding and supporting each child’s individual ability to the fullest.   This year will be an awesome one, I have no doubt – and I look forward to many more to come!
