We have a very busy and exciting year awaiting us! I want your child to be happy and successful here at Laveen Elementary and believe that you play a key role. That role is to continually show interest and support for your child. A child who knows that his or her family is involved with their education will almost always have fewer behavioral problems in school along with a greater success rate in their academics. We believe in fair and consistent discipline that encourages students to be responsible for themselves. In my second grade classroom, I will create a safe and positive environment where respect, differences and kindness will prevail. Please share any information regarding your child’s special needs that will help me better serve your family. I believe that communication among parents, students, and teachers is critical to assuring student success. I am truly excited to be a part of your child’s education.
