About The Teacher
My name is Breanne Yamada (Simons) and I am a proud Arizona and Ahwatukee native. I am an Arizona State University alum and graduated from the Honors College with my BAE in Elementary Education, a BS in Family and Human Development, and a minor in Sociology. I also graduated from The University of Phoenix with a Master's in Curriculum and Instruction. I have always loved all things related to education and teaching. I have taught kindergarten, third grade, and first grade. I remember being about seven or eight years old and knowing that I would be a teacher someday. Some things never change! I attended Kyrene schools for my elementary and middle school career and completed all of my internships and student teaching in Kyrene. I also worked for Kyrene Kids Club for three years during college. Sierra is a wonderful school with an experienced, passionate, giving staff and I am proud to be a part of the school! When I am not teaching, I am usually shopping, eating out with Mr. Yamada, visiting friends around the US, or going to Disneyland to visit Minnie Mouse!!
