Hello my name is Mrs. Sonive and I teach 3rd Grade here at Redbird Elementary. I have been teaching at Redbird for the last four years and have been teaching for a total of 28 years.I have taught a variety of grade levels including 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade  and even taught teachers one year as a Reading Coach. I truly enjoy teaching and helping ALL students become successful learners! My second grade teacher Mrs. Ashby is who inspired me to follow in her footsteps and become a teacher of young children.

I was born and grew up in a small town in northern New Mexico and I am CRAAAAZZZZY about red and green chile!!  I moved to Mesa, Arizona in 1989 after graduating from New Mexico State University with my BA in Elementary Education.I continued my education in Arizona and completed my Masters in Reading at Northern Arizona University. I have two amazing sons that make my life complete!!!! Caleb is  a college graduate from The University of Arizona and Jaden my son will be starting his junior year at RMHS and is a amazing at photographer and has even started his own photography business. The true LOVES OF MY LIFE are my two furry doggie pets named Oakley and Daisy who jump into my arms and give me hundreds of kisses everyday when I walk in the door. They warm my heart and put a smile on my face daily!

I look forward to meeting all new students and parents and you are welcome to stop by my classroom to say hello or just check things out in D 2 at Redbird Elementary. You can click here to find a suggested Supply List on the following page or click here for a printable supply list.
