Dear Students and Families,
Hi! My name is Mindy Bailey and I am a 5th Grade teacher here at Kyrene de los Lagos Elementary. I have a genuine passion and talent for helping and encouraging students to reach their goals. I am dedicated to educating students and am skilled at relating with students from all types of backgrounds. The teaching experience is absolutely rewarding to me as I aim to see my students reach their full potential every single day.
As for a little background, I am originally from Phoenix, AZ, and I have also lived in Sierra Vista, AZ and San Diego, CA. However, I have spent most of my years in Tucson, AZ where I acquired my elementary education degree from the University of Arizona. Being a true U of A wildcat at heart, I decided to stay in Tucson where I taught 2nd Grade for a year and 5th Grade for five years. Throughout my educational career I have also taught K-8th summer school, worked at a preschool, and have worked in a 4th/5th Grade special education classroom. Wanting to come back to my hometown, I recently moved up to Phoenix a couple years ago to return home. Now I am here in the Kyrene district teaching 5th grade again for my second year at Lagos, and I am excited to continue my journey as a part of the Lagos Mustang family! :)
