    Welcome 6th Graders!

    My name is Loren Considine, and I am overjoyed to be your social studies teacher for the 2018-2019 school year. This will be my fourth year at Power Ranch Elementary, and I am so excited to again be part of this wonderful school family. I received my bachelor's degree in education through the University of Memphis, and my master's degree through the University of Texas.  My experiences as a classroom teacher solidified my passion to further my education, and strive to become the best educator I can be. I believe we are always learning, and I honestly can say I learn something new everyday. After graduation I remained in Tennessee for 3 years, starting my teaching career in Memphis.  I then moved closer to my family in Connecticut and taught in Springfield, Massachusetts.  With a winter filled with over 22 feet of snow, I realized that I might not be equipped to handle New England winters anymore.  My parents were spending their winter in Arizona and I took some time during my break to see for myself why they loved it so much.  It didn’t take long for me to realize why, and I am thrilled to have found a home at Power Ranch. I can’t wait to introduce you to all of the wonderful Ancient Civilizations we will discover during this school year. There is so much to look forward to as we embark on journeys that will take us back to the land of the Aztecs, the Roman Empire, and the Renaissance Era, just to name a few. I am delighted to help you grow as a learner and can’t wait to see what exciting experiences this year holds for us! I am looking forward to getting to know you and your family.
