    About Me
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Dear Families,
     
    Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year at Kyrene De Los Niños!  My name is Leonor Cartagena and I will be your child's fourth grade flex 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 15th year teaching, my seventh 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.  Most recently I have added Youtuber and web designing to my teaching portfolio.  I am still learning all about what technology has to offer!
     
    There are many uncertainties but one thing remains, I look forward to the promise of this new school year.  Your child and your family are valued members of our community at Niños.  I promise I am dedicated to making this a successful and positive year, one where we challenge and grow together in every respect. 
     
    This year will pose its own set of unique challenges but with your partnership, support, and patience, I know we will achieve incredible things!
     
    With love,
    Mrs. Cartagena
