    About Mrs. Kiefer
    purple line            

    Hi! My name is Suzanne Kiefer. I am so excited to be teaching 4th grade here at Esperanza. While I am new to 4th grade, I am not new to Esperanza. Last year I had two roles, Library Media Specialist and 5th grade math and reading teacher, and I enjoyed every minute of it! The community of students and staff at Esperanza is one I would not trade for anything. This is my second year at Esperanza but I was at Estrella for 5 years working as a K-3 Instructional Assistant, offering intervention in reading and math. I also have done a lot of guest teaching around the Kyrene School District over the years. I attended Kyrene Schools including Waggoner and Kyrene Middle School. I also attended Corona del Sol High School in Tempe. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from the University of Phoenix.  I am married and have 2 daughters, Stephanie (12), who is starting middle school this year at Akimel and Mackenzie (9) who is in 4th grade at Estrella. I love spending time with my family, reading, going to movies, and most importantly helping each and every child achieve success in a positive and caring environment. Please do not hesitate to call or e mail me with any questions you may have. I look forward to a wonderful year ahead!
