    About Me
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 
    Dear Families,
     
    Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year at Kyrene De Los Niños!  My name is Leonor Cartagena and I will be your child's second grade teacher.  I would like to take a moment to tell you a little about myself.
     
    In 2006, I graduated with honors from Arizona State University, completing the Multilingual/Multicultural program, and earning my B.A. in education.  This will be my 14th year teaching, my sixth at Niños.  I have taught first, second, third, and multi-age grades.  I am always looking for ways to grow and make learning more dynamic, engaging, and meaningful.
     
    I am looking forward to the promise of a new school year!  Your child is a valued addition to our community at Niños.  I am dedicated to making this a successful and positive year.  With your partnership and support, I know this is something we will achieve!
     
    Sincerely,
    Mrs. Cartagena
