    My name is Dawnielle Edwards and I am a second grade teacher at Riggs Elementary!

    My Education and Professional Background

    I am originally from Ohio and attended Kent State University where I received a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education. I moved to Arizona to student teach, and I have been here ever since! This will be my fifteenth year teaching.

    My Educational Philosophy

    I love teaching second grade because students grow by leaps and bounds at this age. It's so rewarding to be a part of that! In addition to academics, character is very important. My students learn about five important P words: perseverance, patience, participation, problem-solving, and being polite! Being bucket fillers is a BIG part of our learning environment, as well.
