About Mrs. Poirier
I am so excited to be teaching 4th grade at Monte Vista Elementary this year. This will be my 12th year teaching. I began my teaching career in the Phoenix Elementary School District where I taught 2nd, 4th, and 6th grades. I taught there for 7 years before moving to North Carolina for a short time for my husband's job. In North Carolina I taught 4th grade for 3 years. Last year I taught 2nd grade at Monte Vista. I earned my Bachelors degree in Elementary Education from ASU and my Masters Degree from NAU. I am Nationally Board Certified and a Reading Specialist.
I grew up in Michigan and moved to Arizona just before high school. My husband and I have 2 boys, Trent (4) and Cole (2), who keep us very busy. I love reading, spending time with my family, hiking, going out to eat, and traveling. Teaching is my passion and I enjoy spending each day with my students! I look forward to getting to know my students and families.
