Welcome to 4th grade with Mrs. Nagel!
I am originally from New York. I graduated in 1983 from SUNY at Plattsburgh with a Bachelor of Sciences degree in Elementary Education. I then moved to Florida where I taught 4th grade for 5 years in Fort Myers, FL. While living there, I met my husband on the beach! He had always wanted to live in Arizona so after we married, we moved out west!
I was hired at Madison Elementary and taught 4th grade here for 10 years. During this time I went back to school and earned my Masters degree through NAU. My degree was in Elementary Ed. with a focus on Gifted Education. When Wilson Elementary was built, I moved there and taught 4th and 5th grade for 8 years. During those years, I went back to school again and earned my full ESL endorsement. It seems teachers are always in school! Finally I came back home to Madison where I taught 6th grade for 5 years and now about to start my fourth year back in fourth grade!! If you are busy doing the math, that means this is my 32nd year of teaching. And yes, I look far too young to have been teaching this long. The secret is that I LOVE what I do, and it keeps me young in every way that matters.
