    About Mrs. Cronin

    Welcome to Mrs. Cronin's 6th Grade Science & GATE Science Class!

    I am a proud Arizona native. I was born and raised in the Phoenix/Ahwatukee area and attended Kyrene schools. I have a Bachelor's degree in Applied Biological Sciences, with a concentration in Ecology from Arizona State University and a Master's degree in Education. This will be my third year teaching at Aprende. 

    Before becoming a teacher, I worked in the healthcare field in both the radiology and oncology/research specialty fields for about seven years, and after completing my undergraduate degree in ecology, I also worked as a Naturalist and taught environmental education in south central Phoenix. It was teaching environmental education that really solidified my love for teaching, so I decided to pursue a professional career teaching secondary education.

    When not teaching science, I love spending quality time with my husband and our two year old daughter. We are avid animal lovers and share our home with an adorable rescue dog named, Zelda, and a rescued desert tortoise, Mo. We also love to travel and have been to many unique destinations which I love to talk about with my students, as I hope to inspire them to travel abroad one day themselves. 

    Looking forward to a fantastic 2019-20 school year!
