Welcome to Mrs. Somers' Technology class webpage! I am looking forward to getting to know each student and build positive relationships with all the families I work with. A little bit about me...I live in Chandler with my husband Adam, son Jack and daughter Emma. Both of my children attend Basha Elementary school!We have a pug named Tugger that we all adore. In our spare time we love to attend ASU sporting events, and try to travel as much as we can.
My Education and Professional Background
I started teacher in 2001. I spent the first 14 years of my career in the Kyrene School District serving in different roles. While in Kyrene I taught 1st-3rd grade, and was a Math and Literacy Instructional Coach. In 2015 I moved to the Chandler School district and taught 4th grade here at Haley. In my spare time I am also an educational consultant for a local consulting company. I am excited to begin my new role as the Haley Technology teacher. I attended ASU for both my undergraduate (elementary education)and graduate degrees (Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in Language and Literacy).
My Educational Philosophy
It is my passion to create a comfortable learning environment where students respect one another and aren't afraid to take risks. I believe that students need time to collaborate, share ideas and support each other to become the best 21st century learners they can be. Children all learn differently and at different rates so they need to pushed to their best ability through learning opportunities that challenge them. Through the integration of technology into each of the grade level learning standards students in my classroom will be prepared for the future.
