About Mrs. Everts
Dear Families and Students,
I am very eager to begin the 2018-2019 school year here at Kyrene Traditional Academy! Your child is a valued addition to our community of learners, cooperating and collaborating with his or her peers, and I am dedicated to making this one of the most successful and positive years your child will experience.
I have many hobbies, such as reading, shopping, and spending time with my family. I have one daughter who attended Kyrene schools. She is currently a college junior. I live in the district and have been part of this community for over 25 years.
Professionally, this will be my 35th year teaching with 27 of those years in First Grade. I graduated with my B.A. in Early Childhood Education from the University of Northern Iowa and received my M.Ed. from Arizona State University. Taking college and district classes keeps me up-to-date on the best educational practices. I love learning just as much as I love teaching!
Our classroom will be filled with child-centered inquiries where each student can reach their potential. Meaningful learning which actively engages the students is essential for learning to occur. We will work on individual goals and to be risk-takers in our learning environment. Our classroom community will promote a safe atmosphere to ensure that all students have a strong self-worth. Together, we can help your child have a successful First Grade year. I look forward to strong partnership!
