My name is Leonarda Ortega Chavez and I teach second grade. I was born and raised a small town mining girl. I am a proud graduate of Hayden High, Arizona State University and Northern Arizona University. Dancing, travelling the world, the Arts, and playing Bingo with family and friends are my favorite pastimes. I also enjoy spending time up North with my Sister and Brother-in-Law; they are my touchstones. I love homemade Mexican food and anything chocolate.
As a thirty year veteran teacher, I have taught grades first through third at Field Elementary, Eisenhower Elementary and Sirrine Elementary. It is an honor teaching here at Brinton Elementary at the request of my former administrator Dr. Pat Estes. I truly love teaching second grade; it is my passion. Consequently, throughout the years, my students and I have received awards and acknowledgements for creative writing and outstanding teaching.
Every school year brings new and exciting opportunities for us to learn together. I always look forward to hearing my students proudly say, with a heartfelt smile, "That was fun!!!" or "I'll keep trying." or my favorite, "I DID IT!!!" "THAT'S WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT!!!!"
