Mr. Joshua Manning

My name is Josh Manning, and I am a proud graduate of the University of Arizona with a bachelors in Elementary Education. I am very excited to be a part of the BMES team, and I look forward to getting to know everyone in the community! Having grown up in Cave Creek and attending Black Mountain Elementary as a child, coming back feels like that of a homecoming! There is something quietly special and unique about Cave Creek that brought me back, and for that I am grateful.

I strongly value the art of expression and passion, and I believe that it’s crucial for children, and adults for that matter, to have some kind of outlet or capacity where they feel comfortable to do so, whether it’s reading, art, music, sports, etc. When we find something in our lives that we're passionate about, something that brings true enjoyment, problems and trials that we face suddenly don't seem as daunting. Personally, I express myself in as many ways as I can. When I am not teaching, you will most likely find me in the weight room, with family and friends, exploring new music, or enjoying the outdoors!

Through passion, empathy, and respect, I hope to reach each student in my class to provide them with life tools they can take into their future endeavors. I am looking forward to a great year of connecting with students and parents, and growing as a teacher!
