MEET MRS. WOOTON

My name is Maggie Wooton. While I was born and raised in New Hampshire, I moved to Arizona after graduating high school as a junior. Upon moving to Arizona, I attended and graduated from Northern Arizona University with a degree in Sociology and Family Studies. While attending NAU, I met my husband---also a Combs High School teacher! Together we share 2 beautiful daughters who add joy, value, lots of patience, and so much love to our lives.

COUNSELORS CORNER

Did you know? Sports Medicine is another great option for students who might be interested in the medical field. Students who take 2 years of Sports Medicine and pass their exam become OSHA 10 Healthcare certified and also certify in CPR. Students who wish to continue in the Sports Medicine program can take the optional internship class and work side by side with Mr. Nielsen as he helps our athletes in various sports here at CHS.
