Who is Mrs. McKenzie?
Dear parents and guardians,
I am pleased to be your child’s 3rd grade teacher this year at Longfellow Elementary. My philosophy is that every child can grew and learn! I am looking forward to work with your child to help him/her make growth and progression throughout the 2019/2020 school year both academically and personally.
I graduated from the Technological Institute of Chihuahua, Mexico and have a Master’s degree in Elementary Education from Northern Arizona University with endorsements in Spanish and early childhood. I had my first taste of teaching experience in Tucson as a bilingual teacher aide in 2006, where I fell in love with teaching.
I have taught 2nd, 3rd and 4th grades in the Amphitheater School District for eight years. Since relocating to the valley, I have taught 3rd grade Dual Language in the Kyrene School District for two years and one year of 6th grade in the Chandler School District. I am excited to teach 3rd grade this year and I am enthusiastic about working for the Mesa School District.
I am happily married and the rest of my family lives in Chihuahua and Tucson. I have two younger sisters and many cousins. My hobbies include dancing, swimming and reading. I am an avid traveler with many more countries to visit remaining on my bucket list.
I am very eager to work with you and your child. I hope that together, we can become a team and work to help your child succeed in school. I look forward to this upcoming 2019/2020 school year!
