Administration

Meet our Administration

Mrs. Erickson: Principal

 I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from California State University in Sacramento, California. While at CSUS I studied International Business and Spanish. After college I returned to Arizona due to a unique teaching opportunity that presented itself with my former high school Spanish teacher. Though I never planned to enter the education field, I discovered a passion for education and teaching and have been in education ever since. I taught Spanish for eleven years and have worked in the Florence Unified School District for the last nine. In the last four years I have had the opportunity to transition into administration and have worked at Florence K8 and Poston Butte High School in that capacity. I have two children, (one in college and the other in high school) who have helped me to maintain perspective when it comes to the diverse learning needs of students. They have inspired me to continually work to make sure that ALL students obtain the education they need and deserve in order to reach their full potential.

Mr. Bock: Assistant Principal

“It’s Great to be a Bulldog”…again. I am very excited to be back at Skyline Ranch. Eleven years ago I began my employment in the Florence Unified School District here at Skyline Ranch. Since then I have worked at Magma Ranch and Copper Basin. I have 18 years’ experience in education as a teacher and administrator. I am a graduate of Greensboro College, Kean and Northern Arizona Universities where I studied Visual Arts, Education and Educational Leadership. Skyline Ranch has great students, staff and community and I am excited to be a part of it.

Mr. Nafziger: Dean of Students

I have worked in the Florence Unified School District the past eight years. I was the first Varsity Boys’ Basketball Coach at Poston Butte High School and taught math, health, weight training, and PE classes during the past 8 years. I have a Bachelor’s degree in elementary education, a Master’s degree in Health and Physical Education and a Master’s degree in Educational Leadership. I am excited to be the Dean and the Athletic Director and look forward to a great school year!

Ms. Wood: Master Teacher

As the instructional coach at Skyline Ranch K-8, it is my honor to work alongside our teachers toward the common goal of student achievement.  Integrating technology into our instruction, differentiating lessons to meet the needs of all our learners, and analyzing student performance are just some of the ways we work toward this goal.  As I complete my 12th year in education, the highlight of my day continues to be the opportunity to interact with students, staff, and families in a variety of capacities.  I can proudly say it truly is great to be a Bulldog!!
