Hello! My name is Maria James and I am the Title 1 School Improvement Specialist at Longfellow!

I wanted to introduce myself to you! I am from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I attended Syracuse University in New York where I received my Bachelor's Degree. Sunshine was calling, so I headed west to attend Arizona State University. I received my Post Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education, and began teaching in Mesa Public Schools. I have worked in Mesa for 18 years and have taught almost every grade PreK-6th grade! I also have my Master's Degree in Educational Counseling from the University of Phoenix! Currently, I am a Doctoral student at Grand Canyon University! My love for education always keeps me learning! I think I love to be a student just as much as I love to be a teacher!
