About Ms. Watkinson
Dear Parents and Students,
Get ready for a great sixth grade year! I am honored to be working at Altadena as your sixth grade Student Advisor. I have been in the Kyrene School District for the last ten years and I'm so excited to finally be here at Altadena. This is an awesome home!
I'm lived all over the country and grew up in Northern California. I came to Arizona 13 years ago and have yet to want to leave! I attended ASU for both my Bachelors in Education and my Masters in Administration and Supervision. I was a Language Arts teacher before getting into administration.
Altadena truly is a great place to be! There are so many ways to get connected and become successful. We all know that coming into sixth grade is a huge transition, but it can be fun too! Student success is our shared mission. Everything will take a little getting used to - a little known secret about our campus is that the teachers like being here and therefore the students like being here. It really is a family not just a campus.
As a Student Advisor I am here for your needs and concerns. Please feel free to come see me or contact me about your joys or your questions. My door is always open.
