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 19 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 27 to 11, and they are my greatest treasure! In June, Cameron married Devon, so we're excited to add her 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 loved my first year in third grade!

When I'm not at school, I might be found playing games, watching movies, family at weddingcamping, 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 along the way! Our experience together will be joyful and memorable. I can hardly wait!!
