Hello kindergarten students and parents!
Welcome to room 7, my name is April Rodriguez, and I LOVE kindergarten! I graduated from Northern Arizona University with my Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education. I started my teaching career in a 4th/5th grade combo classroom at a private school for students with emotional disabilities before arriving at Longfellow, where I spent 2 memorable years teaching 6th grade prior to kindergarten. I've lived in Mesa since I was a 5th grader and graduated from Dobson High. When I'm not at school, you can usually find me with my family and friends, or my sweet Maltese dog, Sadie. I love to read, dance, kayak, organize, and cook. I am also a huge Arizona Cardinals fan!
Our school's motto is "Engage, Empower, Excel", and that is what I will strive for daily in our classroom as I will work to keep my students challenged and promote an environment of teamwork, accountability, kindness, and respect. I am looking forward to watching all of my students learn, grow, be kind, and make friends as they embark on their first year of their education. We are going to have such a great year! :)
