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! I am currently teaching my eighth class of first graders!
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.
