Dear Parents,

I am very excited to welcome you and your child to Kindergarten here at Brinton.  This will be my eighth year teaching here. I look forward to working together with you to educate your child.

I grew up in Mesa and am glad to be back “home”. My family moved here for the heat from Saskatchewan, Canada and our first year here I was enrolled in first grade at Hawthorne Elementary.  Next, I attended Poston Jr. High, then Mountain View High School.  After I graduated from ASU, I married my college sweetheart, then was hired for my first teaching position in central Phoenix.

We have three beautiful, successful adult children.

I taught for 5 years in Phoenix, took a few years away from teaching and lived abroad, in Turkey.  When we returned to Arizona, I worked in Gilbert for four years before coming back to Mesa.

I love to teach and these little ones are the most delightful to watch as they grow and learn.  I hope this year will be full of joys and great memories for all of us.


Mrs. Tallent
