Ask any third grader the purpose of third grade and they'll tell you - cursive and multiplication. We learn both of those and we also cover lots of other challenging, interesting, and fun topics while learning the Arizona Standards. We are a class of enthusiastic, hard-working students anxious to challenge ourselves to do our best.
I am one of the original teachers at Val Vista Lakes Elementary and I have been teaching in Gilbert for over 30 years. I am a highly-qualified educator certified in elementary education with endorsements in early childhood education, gifted education, and SEI. I enjoy travelling, road trips, hiking, and gardening. My husband and I have two grown children who attended VVL as elementary students. Our daughter is a marketing manager and works at GoDaddy. Our son is a senior at ASU majoring in Physics and Chemistry.
