Jennifer Pesato-Farrley recently became the new director of curriculum for Arizona's Florence Unified School District, Pinal County Today reports. In this position, one of her most important roles will be integrating the Common Core State Standards into the schools' curriculum.

According to its website, the Common Core State Standards aims to provide a clear and consistent curriculum in mathematics and English language arts for students across the country. This will ensure that all children are learning the same material in the same grades, regardless of where they live in the U.S.

Amy Fuller, district assistant to the superintendent for instructional and bilingual services, told the news outlet that Pesato-Farrley will be a useful addition to the faculty when it comes to integrating the Common Core State Standards into the curriculum. In doing so, she will greatly improve children's education.

"What we have now is good [but] this will be better," Fuller told the news source. "The skills we taught in second grade will now be taught in kindergarten."
