    About Mrs. Berrelleza
     
    I’m very excited to be starting this new school year with all of you.  This year you will meet wonderful new friends and teachers.  You will also make many new memories and have lots of new learning experiences.  I can’t wait to learn all about each one of you, but first, let me tell you a little bit about myself.
       
    To start with, I am an Arizona native, born and raised here in the desert!  I enjoy riding my bike, hiking, crafting, and thrift store shopping.  And, I am the mother of two cats.  
       
    I graduated from Chandler High School before attending Arizona State University.  I earned my Bachelors in Elementary Education in 2009. 
       
    This is my 11th year teaching at KMS.  During my time as a scorpion I have taught Science, Social Studies, and Math (my favorite!).  
     
    It is my belief that children are the most important part of the classroom.  As their teacher, it is my job to provide every child with a safe, positive, and stimulating learning environment.  In order to meet the needs of all students, I will integrate structured classroom lessons with class discussions, hands on learning experiences, and collaborative group work.  Every child will have the opportunity to learn, grow, and succeed in my classroom.
     
    I'm looking forward to a great school year!
