"You're off to great places! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting. So... get on your way!" ~ Dr. Seuss

Hello Dragons and welcome to Room 2! My name is Lizeth Ortega and I am thrilled to be teaching 1st grade. This is my fourth year at Ishikawa and I absolutely love it! Teaching is something that I truly enjoy and see myself doing for as long as possible.

I am originally from Palo Alto in Northern California, but moved to Arizona in 2003. I then became a product of Mesa Public Schools and graduated from Skyline High school in 2010. I attended Arizona State University, where I earned my B.A. in Elementary Education and my M.Ed. in Applied Behavior Analysis.

In my spare time, I enjoy watching sports (Go Cardinals! Go Warriors!), shopping, reading, and staying active.


I am excited to work with you and your child. I know it'll be a great year of learning!
