Hello My Name Is...

John Lasher

 Mr. Lasher

I'm so glad to be joining the Language Arts Department at Washington High School as a junior and senior English teacher.  I've worked in the district for a number of years as an instructional aide, and completed my Master's degree in Secondary Education with an English emphasis in 2012 at the University of Phoenix.  I also earned my Bachelor's degree in Behavioral Studies from Arizona Christian University.  After completing my student teaching at Greenway High School, I was pleased to accept a teaching position at Washington.  I'm excited about the shift from the old state standards to the new Common Core standards, and I believe the emphasis on student centered learning and higher level thinking will change the face of Arizona's educational system and prepare our students for life after high school.
