Welcome to Ms. Coster’s 3rd Grade Class! I know this will be a fantastic year of learning, growing, and fun! I am looking forward to making wonderful memories with my students and their families. I am thrilled to be your child's teacher this year! I love reading and will share my enthusiasm for books with your child. I enjoy hiking, camping, and attending Cub’s games with my family. I am a huge Chicago Cubs fan! Go Cubs!
I graduated from the University of Saint Francis with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. I worked for Plainfield School District in Plainfield Illinois from 2008-2015. In July 2015, I moved to Arizona and taught third grade at Legacy Traditional School for four years. Then, I was hired by Higley School District and I have taught as a 2nd grade ELA teacher for the Mandarin program and as a 3rd grade teacher.
All students possess the ability to achieve academic success in the classroom. As an educator, I incorporate different teaching methods during each lesson plan to ensure the content I am teaching is meaningful to all students. By establishing a positive, safe environment, my students will feel comfortable participating and putting forth the effort to achieve their academic goals. Academic excellence is achieved by the effort and collaboration of the student, teacher, and parents.
