|About Mrs. Badgley
Dear Parents and Students,
I am so excited to have you and your child in my class this year at the best middle school in the district. Born and raised in San Francisco, Californa, I am first generation American and I speak German fluently.
I have taught for 19 years over the last 29 years. Seventeen of those years in middle school ELA. I have taught 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. My teaching experience is from California, Ohio, and here in Arizona. I took 10 years off to help my husband run his business. Which gives me the added benefit of life experience outside of the school system.
I have been in the Kyrene district for six years. I taught at Pueblo, KMS, and Altadena. My daughter is a former Altadena Panther and went on to Desert Vista, CCC and NAU. So I really feel like part of the family.
My family consists of my husband, daughter, three step children, six step-grandchildren and two crazy Chihuahuas.
I coach, I am a WEB advisor, and a LEAD teacher. I love volunteering too! I am captain of the Arizona Ironman 70.3 finish line, and I usually try to recruit families to join me but with COVID-19 I am not too sure how safe it will be. I am also one of two backstage managers at Cornerstone Church.
I am looking forward to an exciting year of growth, learning, and the challenges that COVID-19 is bringing to education. We will work together to get the best education for you and your children!
