    Meet Dr. Cleveland

    Welcome to 4th grade!  I am very excited to be teaching this group of students. This will be my twenty-sixth year of teaching and my eighteen year at Estrella Elementary. Previously, I taught fourth and fifth graders in Henderson, NV and fifth graders in Buckeye, AZ. I graduated from Northern Arizona University with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education and later earned my Masters in Educational Leadership at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. In 2009, I achieved National Board Certification and in 2015, I graduated from Arizona State University with my Doctorate in Education in Leadership and Innovation. My husband, Geoff, and I have been married for 24 years and own two dogs, Molly and Murphy. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, traveling, shopping, and both my husband and I enjoy the outdoors— running, cycling, hiking, and swimming.
