Dear Parents and Students,
I am very eager to begin the new school school year here at Kyrene de la Sierra! Your child is a valued addition to our community of learners, cooperating and collaborating with his or her peers, and I am dedicated to making this one of the most successful and positive years your child will experience.
I have many hobbies, such as traveling to the mountains, reading, paddleboarding, and spending time with my extended family. I have one child who attends a Tempe Union High School. My family lives in the district.
I grew up in South Lake Tahoe and Portland before moving to the Southwest. I graduated with my BS from Arizona State University in Kinesiology and received my MEd from Arizona State University in Early Childhood Education.
Our classroom will be filled with child-centered inquiries where each student can reach their potential. Meaningful learning which actively engages the students is essential for learning to occur. We will work on individual goals, to respect, and to be risk-takers in our learning environment. Our classroom community will promote a safe atmosphere to ensure that all students have a strong self worth.
Together, we can help your child have a successful 5th grade year. I look forward to strong partnership!
