Meet Miss Isenberg
I am your fifth grade teacher, Miss Isenberg. I am delighted to have you in my class this year. Fifth grade is an exciting year!
I am proud to say that this is my eighth year teaching and I could not be more excited to continue on the 5th grade team! I spent my first five years teaching 4th grade at Kyrene de las Brisas and with the Estrella Stars! Then, I moved up to 5th grade and I am very excited to continue my 5th grade journey. I am an Arizona native and a proud Kyrene Alumni. Previously, I attended Cielo, Aprende, and graduated in 2009 from Corona del Sol. I then went to Arizona State University where I completed my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education with a minor in Family and Human Development. Throughout my time at Arizona State University, I was lucky enough to be a student in Barrett, The Honors College, where I completed an honors thesis surrounding the development of literacy through theatrical participation. I am also a graduate of the iTeachAZ program. The iTeachAZ program allows students to student-teach for a full year, four days a week, while finishing coursework. I completed my student teaching in 4th grade at Kyrene de la Mirada.
Once a week, I work after school at Ahwatukee Children’s Theatre, where I teach K-8th grade. There, I teach students how to act, sing, dance and to simply enjoy being themselves. I have been working there for over seven years and I love every second of it. When I was younger, I would also perform with the theatre on a regular basis, participating in some of my favorite musicals: “Sound of Music”, “Beauty and the Beast” and “Grease”.
When I am not working, some of my favorite things to do are read, listen to country music and go shoe shopping! My favorite books include: The Westing Game, Because of Mr.Terupt and the Nancy Drew Series. I'm also obsessed with all things "cow" and Starbucks!
My passion for teaching came at a very young age when my fourth grade teacher showed me the power of education. I am beyond thrilled to be apart of the Estrella Stars family. I cannot wait to get started!Here’s to a great year!
