Welcome to Arcadia High School, Mrs. Metzler! Mrs. Metzler joined Arcadia’s staff in December as the College and Career Coordinator. She is off and running with scheduling college visits on Arcadia’s campus and helping students in all things college and career: college applications, test preparation, finding scholarships, preparing for “life beyond high school”, and more.
Mrs. Metzler’s Educational background includes:
Mrs. Metzler gained valuable experience while working as an academic mentor to student athletes at a previous job at ASU. In addition, she has worked in the staffing industry at multiple companies where she assisted people in finding jobs. Mrs. Metzler went to high school in Illinois but moved to New England during senior year and graduated a semester early. After going to college and living in Maine, Massachusetts and Florida, she moved to Phoenix in 2014.
When asked what she is proud of, she emphatically answered “My family”. She has three kids and has been a very active mom: volunteering as a Brownie and Girl Scout Leader, on the PTO Board for four years at her kids’ elementary school, and is currently on the PTO Executive Board as Secretary at Desert Mountain High School. Her oldest daughter is a junior, making the opportunity to learn about, navigate, and share her College and Career knowledge with him even more significant.
HOBBIES OR FAVORITE THINGS TO DO WHEN NOT WORKING Spending time with my family, photography (but I delete most of my pictures), and researching my family’s genealogy. One of the most interesting nuggets I have discovered is that one of my ancestors came over on the Mayflower and my husband has two ancestors who came over on the Mayflower.
DOG OR CAT PERSON? Both! My cat thinks she is a dog (she comes when I call her name) and my Beagle acts like a cat (doesn’t come when called).
A RANDOM FACT ABOUT MRS. METZLER: I was a Girl Scout. In fact, when little, I was in a Girl Scout Anniversary commercial. I was the Brownie who got to blow out the candles. Submitted Winter 2016
