Mr. Ken Gibadlo

SPED Department Welcome Letter

I am originally from Chicago and faithfully cheer for my beloved Chicago Bears. I have lived in Arizona since '96 and all three of my daughters have attended schools right here in Cave Creek Unified School District! I am currently the Linebackers/Defensive Line coach for the Cactus Shadows Falcons varsity football team this year. This is my first year as a teacher at Sonoran Trails Middle School. I look forward to working with all of you this upcoming year.

My Educational Philosophy

  • My educational philosophy over the past 6 years is to help students to become the best version of themselves. As a teacher, it's an honor and a privilege to help develop our country's young men and women to make a difference in themselves and the world they live in. Trust is at the center with all of my students as we all take on each day's challenges/life lessons and turn them into impactful changes that will last a lifetime.
