I am Ms. Pierce and I love teaching 5th grade! I graduated from NAU and have a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education with a concentration in mathematics. I have spent most of my life being a teacher and mentor to students. I began teaching preschool in 2013 where I learned to truly appreciate the impact someone can have on the lives of young children.
During my time at NAU I changed gears and began working with college students. I taught a freshmen course on transitioning to college as well as tutored students with disabilities such as ADHD, ASD, Dyslexia, and other processing disorders. I loved each of these roles as an educator, however I feel like I am truly where I am meant to be when teaching fifth grade.
Fun facts about me: I do NOT like coffee, but I do love sweet tea and Coca-Cola! My favorite places to eat are Freddy's, Salad and Go, Babbo, and anywhere that has good ice cream! I enjoy photography and anything crafty such as scrap-booking or painting. I love going to the movies, playing board games and the occasional video game, and most importantly I love spending time with family and my fiance Paul (we are getting married in June 2020).
