About the Assistant PrincipalHello, my name is Teresa Strickling and I am very proud to serve as the Assistant Principal of Kyrene de la Esperanza.
I am passionate about teaching and learning and have been dedicated to the field of education for 20 years. I began my career as a fifth grade classroom teacher. I also taught fourth grade, worked as an instructional coach (in the area of reading and math for grades kindergarten through fifth) and as a Teacher on Special Assignment-Administrator. I have served as a Dean and Program Manager in the Kyrene School District.
I received my Bachelors of Arts in Elementary Education from the University of Arizona (Bear Down!) and my Master's in Education-Administration from the University of Phoenix. I also hold a reading endorsement.
I am a native and enjoy living in Arizona! I love spending time with my family, watching sports, and learning new things. I am committed to supporting teaching and learning - whatever it takes! I believe all children should be encouraged, supported, and inspired to achieve excellence. I am very excited to be part of the Kyrene Esperanza family and look forward to working together to ensure every child achieves.
