Mrs. Marisol Alber
Hello and welcome to First Grade at Las Sendas Elementary! My name is Marisol Alber and I am thrilled for a new school year with your first grader!
I’d like to take this opportunity to tell you a little about myself. My alma mater is ASU. Go Sundevils! This is my 13thyear teaching in Mesa Public Schools with a total of 15 years experience teaching in Arizona. I have always taught Kindergarten and First grade exclusively and I LOVE this age group. I often played school as a young child (and guess who was always the teacher)! I love learning and I love being an educator! My goal is to foster a genuine love for learning in your child.
I was born in California, grew up in Alaska and Arizona is my forever home. I definitely have lived in some extremes of weather! I go home to Mr. Alber and my 15 year old son Michael (who love to help me with my schoolwork) and my kitties Myu Myu and Seven (they also like to help out by playing with and chewing up my homework). In my ‘spare’ time, I enjoy playing board games, looking at the beautiful nature that surrounds us, escaping to the mountains, watching movies, spending quality time with family, shopping, traveling, eating delicious food, crafting, walking, and drinking coffee!
In First Grade, we LOVE to read! We will also be writing our own stories, creating artwork, and learning a ton of Math! We will be learning to be more independent and to be problem solvers too! Science and Social Studies are also favorites in First Grade.
In our classroom, we are like a family, so, it is very important to be Kind, Respectful, Responsible and Safe.This helps to ensure we can all learn, have fun, and look forward to coming to school each and every day. And…we always try our best in everything we do!
I look forward to getting to know you as we work together to make this year an enjoyable and successful one for your child. Your support and involvement are valuable and necessary for this. Please keep in contact with me. I welcome you to call/email/write a note/etc. with any questions or concerns you may have along the way. My door is always open to you. See you soon!
