Welcome to the 3rd grade, and to my classroom! My name is Miss. Petka and I will be your child’s third grade teacher for the 2021-2022 school year! I look forward to a fantastic year. Your student will be challenged, held accountable, and most importantly loved. 3rd grade is a busy year of learning. I am beyond excited to watch your child bloom into an amazing leader this year!
I was born in Arizona. This is my second year teaching here at San Tan. Last May I graduated from Northern Arizona University. Fun fact about me: I attened Higley High school as a student, so it has been such a fun journey making it back to the Higley Unified School District as an educator. I have a crazy two year old boy who keeps me on my toes. When I am not in the classroom I enjoy spending time with friends and family, traveling, and going to Disneyland!
Parents, I know how important it is to be involved in your child’s education. Therefore, I will maintain constant communication with you in order to involve you as much as possible. Communication will come primarily in the form of emails and, phones calls if necessary. Keep an eye out for a weekly newsletter that I email out at the end of each week.
