Welcome to Third Grade!
I am looking forward to my sixth year as a 3rd grade teacher for San Tan Elementary. It is extremely important to me that your child has an experience in 3rd grade which will develop positive self-esteem and academic success. Working together, third grade will be a wonderful and challenging experience for your child. At San Tan we use the 7 Habits to create a culture of leadership for all our students. The Leader in Me program inspires students to be leaders in school and at home.
A little bit about myself, I was born and raised in New Jersey. I attended college at Rutgers in Newark, NJ and Rio Salado here in AZ. My husband and I moved to Arizona 22 years ago and love it here! My twin boys have been in the Higley district since kindergarten and are now seniors in High School. We have three dogs, Lucy, Ollie, and Bubba. They are always up to something interesting.
I know that education is a partnership of home, school and community. Frequent communication is vital for our success. Communication will primarily be emails and phone calls when necessary. I send home a weekly news email. All parents who either want to volunteer in the classroom, on a field trip, or on campus must complete an application. If you are interested, please contact me the front office for a volunteer packet. Third graders still love to see their parents at school. I look forward to a wonderful school year.
