Biography 

Jeff Hengesbach holds a BA from Arizona State University in Secondary Education, with dual majors in Physics and Math and a MA from Northern Arizona University in Educational Leadership. He is currently pursuing his PhD in General Psychology focused on Educational Technology at Grand Canyon University. After serving in the United States Air Force, he began his career as a high school science teacher after participating in the first modeling workshop in 1992 while an undergraduate physics student at Arizona State University. Over the years he has taught science courses from middle school to the graduate level, led Modeling Workshops across the nation, and supported modeling curricular and workshop development efforts. He has held various leadership roles in several independent schools which has allowed him to live in several places around the nation. In addition to my adjunct teaching at EMCC, ASU and GCU, he worked as a STEM Coach on a i^3 grant project, where he had the opportunity to support teachers and their students in numerous rural districts within Maricopa County and he was the executive officer for the American Modeling Teachers Association. In addition to his professional life he is an avid reader and martial arts enthusiast, a dedicated father and husband, and adventure hiker, he and islooking forward to joining the faculty in the important work being done at EMCC.
