Hello and welcome to another fantastic year at Pomeroy! I am excited to be back in First Grade after a few years in Second! It will be an amazing year for all of us to learn and grow together!
This will be my sixth year at Pomeroy. The first three years I taught First Grade, then moved to Second Grade for two years. I am delighted to have the chance to be back in First Grade and work with students early in their school journey! I firmly believe that all children are capable of succeeding, and that each child should have the opportunity to grow and learn in the way that works best for them.
I received my Bachelor's degree from ASU, and my Master's degree from GCU. I believe in lifelong learning and continue to take classes to broaden my knowledge.
I have lived in the Phoenix area since I was a child and in Mesa (in the same house) since 1997. My husband and I have three children, Zack, Carlie, and Ian. Zack is married to Abby, Carlie just graduated and will attend MCC, and Ian keeps us busy with baseball at Dobson High School. We have two desert tortoises (one sleeps in the house) and a very old poodle named Niles. I enjoy road trips, music, reading, and spending time with family.
This year will be a big year for our First Graders! They will learn how to add and subtract up to 20 (or more!), how to read fluently, how to write a story, and a lot about Arizona! There is so much packed into First Grade and we are going to have a great time!
Communication with parents is a very important piece of education. Together as a team we will ensure your child's success. Please feel free to call me at 480-474-3717 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org . I will get back to you as soon as I am able to. For emergencies, always call the office at 480-474-3700 as this is by far the quickest way to get in touch.
Thank you so much for your continued support!
