My name is Karly Pillsbury and I will be your students 6th grade ELA and Social Studies teacher! This is my fourth year teaching at San Tan Elementary but my 13th year being a Scorpion. I am a San Tan Alumni, I went to school here from kindergarten to 8th grade! I'm so lucky to be back at my home giving back to my students all that this school gave me!

I graduated from Northern Arizona University with an elementary education degree and a minor in disability studies. I taught 4th grade for two years, 5th grade for one year and now I will be heading to 6th.. I'm so excited to teach ELA and Social Studies as they are my too favorite subjects! I live in Scottsdale with my best friend and my dog, Arlo! On my free time I enjoy to read, travel, bake sweets, spend way too much money on Amazon and hang out with my amazing friends and family.

I firmly believe that each and every student is a leader of their learning. Every student is intelligent in their own way and that should be celebrated. I love being able to do projects and hands on activities to push our learning even further! I am a huge believer in social and emotional learning and love that I am able to be each and everyone of my students go to person for all of their things!
