About Mrs. Ekren
I was born and raised in Chandler, Arizona. I attended Hendrix Junior High and Dobson High School where I was active in sports and band. After high school I went to ASU as part of the Barrett Honor's College and graduated summa cum laude with a BA in Education. I have been married for six years and have two daughters, Bridget and Amelia.
This is my eighth year at KMS. I taught 6th grade social studies for three years and this will be my fifth teaching 7th grade.
I love teaching, especially about history and social studies. I think it is so important for kids to know about the world around them and why things are the way that they are. I believe that learning about the past helps students appreciate others and the differences we have. I hope to help foster curiosity about history and create an environment where students want to learn and feel safe to be creative and ask questions.
If you ever have any questions or concerns please don't hesitate to call or email. I look forward to working with you all throughout the year!
