Welcome to Second Grade!  My name is Ms. Magana.  I have been educating students here at Crismon for 28 years.  I love the sense of community that comes with working at this school!  I moved here from Ohio where I earned my degree from Bowling Green State University.  I also have a Master’s Degree from NAU.  I have a daughter named Megan. I have two spoiled dogs, Zion and Barley.  In my free time I enjoy reading, running, biking, and cooking.  Every summer I try to travel somewhere different.  Some of the places I have visited are Cancun where I toured Chichen Itza, the Rhode Island area where I visited the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, the Empire State Building, Boston, Martha’s Vineyard, a cruise through Cozumel, Jamaica, and the Cayman Islands, and most of the Hawaiian Islands. I travelled to beautiful Maine and Nova Scotia.  One time I took an amazing adventure to Belize with my daughter, sister and niece.  We toured many famous Mayan ruins and even went spelunking through a cave to see sacrificial Mayan aritfacts.  We have also explored Washington and Puerto Rico.  When I travel I have to combine beauty with education! I love to learn and love teaching my students how to enjoy learning.  We are going to have a fantastic year!
