|Position:||3rd Grade Teacher|
Hello! Welcome to Mrs. Hatzky's website! My name is Tiffany Hatzky and this is my first year here at Tarwater! My husband and I have a daughter and two sons. We love to spend time as a family watching football games. I am so excited to be your child's third grade teacher and honored to be a Toro!
My Education and Professional Background
In 2009, I graduated from the University of Northern Iowa with a Bachelors of Science degree in Elementary Education. I moved to Arizona from Iowa to complete my student teaching and never went back. In addition, I have a Masters Degree in Educational Administration and Leadership. Throughout my ten years of teaching, I have taught 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades.
My Educational Philosophy
I believe that my privilege as a teacher is to nurture and encourage my students to be lifelong learners. By implementing hands on activities, discussions, and humor, I hope to encourage students to think creatively and to explore their own curiosities. I am committed to evaluating students' comfort and engagement levels in the classroom, as well as their mastery of objectives. Students need to feel confident in their learning abilities and this is accomplished through positive feedback. I will praise students not just for obtaining mastery but for their efforts, creativity, and use of critical thinking skills. Creating a welcoming space for learning is so important. I am dedicated to making sure that each student's school experience is positive,nurturing, and meaningful,
