Welcome to Fifth Grade!
I am looking forward to my seventh year at San Tan Elementary and moving on up to 5th grade!. It is extremely important to me that your child has an experience in 5th grade which will develop positive self-esteem and academic success. Working together, fifth 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 23 years ago and love it here! My twin boys have been in the Higley district since kindergarten and just graduated May 2019. 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 the front office for a volunteer packet. I greatly appreciate parent involvement in the classroom. I look forward to a wonderful school year.
