    About Mrs. Wardline  
     

    Dear Parents and Students,

     

    Welcome!  I am the Academic Interventionist at Esperanza.  I provide additional small group instruction for K-5 students.  My goal is to inspire students, families, and teachers to love reading and writing and especially to love books.  I hope those that I encounter will become lifelong learners and thinkers who aspire to achieve their highest potential.

     

    I have been teaching for 22 years, all but one has been in Kyrene.  Before becoming an Academic Interventionist,  I was a Literacy Coach and taught first grade, fifth grade, sixth grade, and eighth grade. 

     

    I grew up in Southern California and graduated with my BA in Psychology from UC Riverside then received my Teaching Credential from Cal Poly Pomona.  A few years later, I earned my M.ED in Curriculum and Instruction with an Emphasis in Reading from Arizona State University.  I have lived in Arizona for 25 years and love it here.

     

    Outside of school I love to read and I love baseball, especially the California Angels.  My family and I enjoy traveling, hiking and watching movies.  I have a 21-year old daughter, Allie and a 19 year old son, Brett.

     

    I look forward to working with the students, families, and staff at Esperanza.

     

    Happy Reading!
