Mr. Randy Lazar

I was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; however, I lived in Arizona for over thirty-six years.  I graduated from Arizona State University with a degree in education.  At this point in my career, I have almost thirty-two years of experience in the field of education.  When I started my career in education, my first teaching position was at the original Maricopa Elementary School, which at that time was K-8.  In 1987, we only had Maricopa Elementary School and Maricopa High School.  Since the mid-1980s, Maricopa has grown dramatically!  When I was in college, I thought that the best way to influence the lives of others was through the field of education---I still think the same way today.  Education opens up many doors for people and provides a pathway for success in any career choice.  As the principal of Pima Butte Elementary School (for almost six years), I really like being in the classrooms seeing our teachers at work with our students.  It is exciting to see students grow over the course of a school year.  Altogether as one big team – staff, students, families, and community members – we can have a wonderful impact on the learning experiences of our students!
