Welcome to E-Learning at Cactus Shadows!
Welcome to the 2021-22 school year. My name is Chris Stahowski and I am the the E-Learning Director and Character Coach for the Falcon Pride program here at Cactus Shadows High School. This is my third year at the high school and 14th year in education. I have worked in school districts in California, Georgia, and now Arizona. During my 14 years in the classroom I have taught History, Geography, Economics, Government, and Credit Recovery courses.
I received my BA in History from California State University, Fresno as well as my Master's in Administration from Concordia University, Irvine. I have been a basketball coach for the last 22 years, coaching high school boys basketball as well as at the college level. Currently I am an assistant coach for the men's basketball program at Scottsdale Community College.
Mr. Kyle Ledesma (Coach Des) is our E-learning facilitator. Mr. Ledesma is a graduate of CSHS and has been working on campus for 4 years now as an aide and football coach. He is an Army veteran and in school now to earn his degree and become a teacher. We are very lucky to have him working with you in our classroom!
Our goal in E2020 is to help our students with the opportunity to earn their credits and get them back on track! We want to help our students not only get back on track academically, but give them an environment they look forward to attending everyday! We asks the students to come to class everyday ready to learn and we will offer guidance and help within the E2020 program.
We look forward to working with you and getting to know you better!
