Mrs. Ranelle Rothlisberger


I'm super excited to start a new year in third grade! I can't wait to meet each of you and begin our amazing journey together.

I graduated from ASU (GO DEVILS!), and I've been teaching for 20 years. I LOVE it so very much! Most of that time I taught at my own preschool in Gilbert and Mesa so I could be a stay at home mom to my four children--Cameron, Kylie, Keegan, and Cade. They range in age from 28 to 13, and they are my greatest treasure! Last year, Cameron married Devon, and Kylie married Jared, so we're excited to have two new additions to our family!

I knew I wanted to be a part of the Zaharis family the first time Mr. Oliver invited me to visit the school. I am so grateful to teach in a place where both the children and adults possess a genuine love of learning and I am inspired each day. I've enjoyed teaching kindergarten and first grade, and I'm loving my time in third grade!

When I'm not at school, I might be found playing games, watching movies, camping, reading, traveling, or working at home. I enjoy playing volleyball and racquetball or watching my kids play anything. Most of all, I love spending time with my family. 

I know we will all learn a lot this year, my goal is to make sure we have fun doing it! Our experience together will be joyful and memorable. I can hardly wait!!
