My name is Kalie Blackwell and I am so excited to be teaching at Mirada this school year! I graduated from Northern Arizona University with a Bachelors degree in Elementary and Special Education in December 2017. I completed my student teaching in a 3rd grade classroom at Milenio and a resource classroom at Monte Vista.
I was born and raised in Arizona and very lucky to have attended Sierra elementary school and Centennial middle school in the Kyrene School District. I have so many amazing memories growing up in Kyrene schools and I am so excited to help my students have amazing memories as well. Outside of the classroom, I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, exercising, attending concerts and football games! This past summer I rescued a Golden retriever mix named Bruno, so I am looking forward to spending more time outdoors this fall! I am obsessed with anything to do with Disney, elephants and sunflowers.
I am looking forward to working with you and your child this year! If you have any questions or need anything, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me. I am looking forward to having a wonderful year with you all!
