    About Gwen Cordiak
    purple line   .


    Welcome to 3rd grade! I am very excited to be your child’s teacher this year. I know we are going to have a year filled with exciting and fun learning.

    I’d like to share a bit of background information on myself. My name is Gwen Cordiak. I have taught 3rd grade for roughly 23 years, mostly in the Mesa School District. I took 10 years off from teaching to raise my own children, and have been back to teaching full time the last 10 years at Cielo. Cielo feels like home to me, because all 3 of my own children attended Cielo. I am a proud mother of 3 adult children, 2 of whom are still in college, and one is out in the work force.  I also became a Grandmother this past February to a beautiful boy, named Grayson.  (I'm sure you'll hear a lot about him this year!)

    I grew up in Rhode Island and Ohio. I attended Bowling Green State University in Ohio for my BS in Elementary Education, and then got my MA in Elementary Ed., from ASU. I am passionate about teaching, love my family time and traveling, and LOVE reading!

    I look forward to working with you and your child this year. Welcome to my classroom!
