Hi! My name is Mrs. Ayer and I am thrilled to be at Power Ranch and so excited to welcome you to my 2nd grade class this year! I am looking forward to a fantastic year of learning and growth! I moved from Southern California (Mission Viejo) in 2021 and am enjoying getting to know more about Arizona. In my free time I love to read, travel and spend time with family and friends.
I have a B.A. in Journalism with a minor in Psychology from San Diego State University. I also did my Multiple Subjects Teaching Credential at SDSU as a graduate program and am certified in Elementary Education here in Arizona as well. I have worked with all elementary grades but really love 2nd grade! I have one daughter who is a nursing major at ASU and I get to see her a lot more since I moved out here! We are both huge Disneyland fans and we have been passholders since she was 4 years old!
My teaching philosophy is that we are educating the whole child, not just academically, but socially and emotionally as well. I believe that my students, their parents and I are a team. I love getting to know each child not only as a student but also as a person. My passion is finding creative ways to meet each student at their individual levels and support them through their triumphs and challenges. My goal is to ensure that all my students feel welcomed and loved! Here's to a great year!!
