• About Mrs. Volkman 
     
    Dear parents, guardians, and students,

    My name is Mrs. Volkman. Welcome to my math class! This is my fourth year at Aprende, but my ninth year teaching middle school in the Kyrene School District. I am very excited to be teaching 8th grade math this year.

    I attended Arizona State University (Go Devils!) where I earned a Bachelor's Degree in Secondary Education Mathematics and a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction. Before joining the Aprende staff, I spent five years teaching 7th, 8th, and 9th grade math at Altadeña Middle School in Kyrene. 

    I am an Arizona native and grew up in Chandler with my parents and brother. When I am not at Aprende, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. My husband and I welcomed our son into the world in April of 2020. We are huge sports fans and especially love cheering on the Diamondbacks, Sun Devils, and Kansas City Chiefs. I also enjoy spending time with my dogs Goldie and Hazel, playing card and board games, reading, volunteering.
     
    I am looking forward to an awesome year at Aprende and cannot wait to meet you all!
     
    Sincerely,
    Colleen Volkman
