    Welcome! I am Ms. Wahid. My husband and I live in Gilbert with our dog and cats. In my free time I enjoying spending time with friends and family. I'm looking forward to a fun and successful year!

    My Education and Professional Background

    I LOVE being a Rice Rhino. I have taught in Chandler Unified School District since 2006 and before taking the technology teacher position I taught 5th and 6th grade. We have a strong community at Rice and strive to include teachers, students, and parents in deciding what is best for each child. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from ASU in 2003 and my Master's Degree in Educational Technology through NAU in 2010. I love teaching technology and helping teachers incorporate tech into their lessons.

    My Educational Philosophy

    Teaching is my passion; I cannot imagine doing anything else. One of my many goals is for school to be a safe, nurturing, and happy place for students. Building positive relationships students is important to creating a strong community of learners here at Rice. I want each child to feel valued, loved, and empowered. I work to design learning activities that allow students to create, problem solve, and take risks. There is nothing sweeter than seeing the light-bulbs turn on and students becoming independent thinkers. I’m so thrilled that CUSD decided to add technology teachers at the elementary level because it is absolutely necessary to teach these 21st Century Skills starting in Kindergarten, plus – it’s my dream job!

    The Choice is Yours! Why Choose Rice Elementary?

    Our technology curriculum includes the foundational skills students will need to be successful in school and beyond. Students will learn to use a variety of applications and start to learn computer programming (aka coding) during their technology classes. I also incorporate additional technology activities such as robotics and 3D printing!
