Hello! My name is Mrs. Day and I am Centennial Elementary School's Gifted Specialist. I am excited to share this year with you! I have had the privilage of working at Centennial Elementary for seven years!
I was born and raised in a small town in Kentucky. However, I have lived in Arizona for 15 years now and am absolutely lovin’ it! I graduated from Arizona State University with a Bachelors degree in Elementary Education and a minor in Sociology. I am currently pursuing a Masters in Educational Leadership at ASU. GO SUN DEVILS! I am a world traveler as I have visited many places in the U.S. as well as other diverse places like Peru, India, Africa, and much of Europe. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. In my free time, I like to spend time with my husband, Ryan and small dog, Tug! I enjoy spending time on our boat, wake-surfing, going to the movies, working out, and attending football games for the Arizona Cardinals.
I look forward to working with each of you and know the 2019-2020 school year will be a GREAT year with a lot of learning, hard work, and adventures!
