Welcome to Room 37 at Hawthorne Elementary! I love being a Hawthorne Hawk and believe that this school has so many wonderful things to offer.
My name is Mrs. Gardner and I am so excited to be teaching sixth grade! I can remember my own sixth grade experience and my wonderful teacher who used to sing us songs about "greasy, grimy, gopher guts" (ewww...). I grew up in the mountains of Utah. After graduating from high school, I moved to Brazil to serve a mission for my church. I had a wonderful experience living in a new country and experiencing a different culture. After returning from Brazil, I decided to move to Arizona to attend Arizona State University. I have now lived in Arizona for 18 years and I am married to to a very energetic man who is a P.E. teacher here in the district. We have 3 children; Sadie, Jimmy, and Zach.
I have a bachelor's degree in Family Resources and Human Development from A.S.U. and a M.Ed degree in Elementary Education from N.A.U.. I love to teach and I love to learn. One of my favorite quotes is from George Washington Carver. He said, "Education is the key to unlock the golden door of freedom." I hope to instill in my students a love of learning and education that will lead them to more choices and opportunities in their future lives.
