Teacher and Coach, Xavier College Preparatory High School
This chemistry teacher and football defensive line coach at Xavier College Prep has a main career goal: to create the best STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) program in the desert.
“Making students understand that science is not just a novelty but a fun and exciting career is my focus,” Buehler says. “Most schools are not actually STEM certified.”
Buehler and his other passion, wife Carli, moved to the desert about a year ago to be closer to family, including his sister, Julie Buehler, who hosts a local sports talk radio show.
“My generation brings an optimism that technology can solve a lot of our problems,” says Buehler, who admits to being a Trekkie. “Believe me when I tell you the technology that is just over the horizon makes current stuff look like junk.”
