Hi! My name is Ava DuFriend and I am so excited to be teaching 3rd grade this year! I just recently graduated from Northern Arizona University, in May of 2023, with a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education.

I was born and raised in Chandler/ Gilbert, Arizona. I attended school in the Chandler District, where I was given many different learning opportunities. After High School, I attended Chandler-Gilbert Community College, where I graduated with my associate's degree in Elementary Education. I then transferred over to Northern Arizona University.

I have lived in Arizona my entire life and cannot imagine myself anywhere else. I love animals and have 1 dog and 4 cats, which I talk about whenever I get the chance. When I am not teaching, I love to read, watch TV, and hang out with my family and friends.
