    About Ms. Truax

     Hello!  I am very excited to work with you and your child this year in kindergarten! 
    A little about myself...I grew up in Cedar Falls, Iowa. I love the midwest and try to get back a few times a year to visit family and friends.   I attended college at The University of Iowa and graduated with a dual degree in Elementary/Bilingual Education.  After I graduated from college, I attended The University of Northern Iowa and took graduate courses in Early Childhood Special Education. I moved to Arizona and have been teaching in the Kyrene School District since 1994. I have two children, Katie and Zach, as well as my mini schnauzer Libbey.  In my free time, I love to run, read and spend time with family and friends! 
    I look forward to getting to know you and your child this year.  As the youngest students at Colina, we will work hard to form a community of learners where we will master the curriculum as well as learn how to take care of each other, support one another and celebrate our accomplishments throughout the school year!
