Welcome to K-1 with Mrs. Vicars!
I completed my year-long student teaching experience in 1st grade at Zaharis throughout 2012. After graduation, I taught kindergarten in the Roosevelt School District and worked with thirty-one English Language Learning students. I have spent four years teaching kindergarten at Zaharis, where I was meant to end up! I kicked off year number five on an amazing adventure with my mentor teacher, as we teach K-1! Here's to year nine with the fifth year in K-1! Fasten your seat belts! I am excited to witness all the discoveries, connections, and learning that will happen on a daily basis in the classroom.
I graduated from Arizona State University with a BA in Elementary Education, and completed my MA in Early Childhood Education during the summer of 2014! I have a dream in addition to teaching kindergarten, to one day teach future educators and inspire them as they are on their journey to teach the children of our future. I have enjoyed every opportunity to apply my new learning inside the classroom and see how the children develop as readers, writers, mathematicians, scientists, social-scientists, investigators and artists.
I was born in Reading, Pennsylvania, and moved to Tucson, Arizona in 1998. I decided to move up to the Phoenix area from Tucson, in 2008, to attend Arizona State University. I bought a house in 2010. My husband and I purchased our first house together October 2019. I am the oldest of three children, and have two younger brothers. I enjoy spending time outdoors; camping, snowboarding, hiking, and swimming, and enjoy sports; football, basketball, and baseball.
I have an eleven year old puggle named Lola, and an eight year old boxer named Bentlea. Since meeting each other 4 years ago they have become inseparable. They snuggle, love walks, and play tug of war with each other. They have been amazing!
I got married in October of 2018! I was reunited in 2015 with Mark after 10 years, as we knew each other in High School. We welcomed our first child Parker in May of 2020. I've loved the transition of becoming a mommy. He is so fun, and we are enjoying every milestone.
I have found my passion, which is teaching, especially with early childhood education students. Teaching is the most rewarding career, and I enjoy every experience I have had, and will have in the future. I am able to witness child development every day, and there isn't anything I'd rather be doing.
