My name is Elizabeth Arellano and I am very excited to be at Washington this year!

I can’t believe that I moved to Mesa almost 30 years ago! I attended Kino Jr. High and graduated from Mountain View High School.  And now I have an 8th grade daughter and a 5th grade son who also attend Mesa schools.

I went to the University of Arizona and received my bachelor’s degree in Spanish. I decided I wanted to explore another part of the U.S. and went to Boston University where I received my Master’s Degree in Education for Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). I decided those Eastern Winters were not for me and came back to sunny Arizona.

I taught ELD kindergarten for 16 years in Phoenix. I loved teaching and wanted to stay in the school setting, but I was ready for something new and decided that I wanted to become a Speech Language Pathologist. For the past 3 years I have worked here in Mesa as a Speech Language Pathologist Assistant while attending Arizona State University. As a Speech Language Pathologist Assistant, I was fortunate enough to work at Summit, Westwood, Holmes, Irving, Jefferson, Sousa, Kerr, Brinton and Robson and meet many talented students and staff.  In May I graduated with my Master of Science degree in Communication Disorders and am now beginning my first year as a Speech Language Pathologist.

I am looking forward to meeting and working with the amazing students and parents at Washington this year!

Please don’t hesitate to call or e-mail me with any questions or concerns.
