Interim Athletic Director

My Bio

Hello! My name is Miyone Roanhorse and this will be my second year with San Tan Charter School.  My first-year I taught English and also helped with the Varsity girls’ basketball program in addition to being an advisor for student council. This year, I am Interim Athletic Director.

I grew up on the Navajo Nation reservation in a small town called Window Rock. I am Native American (Dine/Seminole).  After graduating from my high school, I moved here to the valley of the sun where I attended Mesa Community College while determining what I wanted to do with my life. While attended MCC, I was hired as a tutor for the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community. This is where I found my passion for working with youth and understanding the impact a teacher can have on a student. I found myself on the path of a Sundevil at Arizona State University as I graduated from the Mary Lou Fulton Teachers college with a Bachelors of Arts in Education. I worked at Salt River High School for 4 years and I was taught English grades 7th – 10th, student council advisor, cross country coach, junior high boys’ and girls’ basketball coach.

In my free time I can be found near a basketball court or on a trail running. I am a program director and coach for a basketball club program Salt River Ba’ag. When I am not coaching I run in 5K’s around the valley with a goal to run a half marathon and one day the Ironman.
