    Welcome to Kyrene Traditional Academy!  My name is Stephanie Leary, and I am very excited to be a part of the KTA community!  This is my first year at Kyrene Traditional Academy, however, I worked at a traditional school as a resource teacher for the past 4.5 years.  I worked with children in grades K-6 with various disabilities.  Prior to becoming a special education teacher, I was a paraprofessional in a self-contained behavior classroom for 2 years.  I strongly believe in the power of yet.  I am very excited to work with your child!  I am most looking forward to getting to know each and every one of you!!

    A little about me:

    I have earned my Masters Degree in Special Education and Elementary Education from ASU.  Go Sun Devils!  I grew up in the great state of Michigan with two older brothers.  I received my undergraduate degree in business from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington.  I have been married for 20 years to my wonderful husband, Eric.  He is currently in the MBA program at University of Arizona, so we are a house divided.  We have two fabulous boys, Drake (15) and Ethan (14).  They are 16 month apart and both attend Desert Vista High School this year.  I am a soccer mom.  You will find me on the pitch most weekends watching Ethan striving to become the next Messi.  I love animals, watching movies, listening to classic rock music, and eating at the Cheesecake Factory.  

    I am looking forward to an amazing year at KTA!
