    Welcome to third grade! My name is Zorena Hazen, and I am so excited to be at Ryan Elementary School!

    My Education and Professional Background

    I graduated from New Mexico State University in 2019 with my Bachelor's in Elementary Education and in 2023 with my Master’s in Curriculum and Instruction: Educational Design and Learning Technologies. I have been teaching third grade since I began my teaching career in 2019! 

    My Educational Philosophy

    As a third-grade teacher, my educational philosophy centers around fostering a love for learning while nurturing the individual growth of each student. I believe that education is a collaborative journey, where students are active participants in their own learning process. By creating a supportive and inclusive classroom environment, I aim to empower students to take ownership of their education, develop critical thinking skills, and cultivate a growth mindset. I strive to provide differentiated instruction that caters to diverse learning styles and interests, allowing every child to reach their full potential. Through a balanced blend of engaging curriculum, hands-on activities, and meaningful discussions, I aim to inspire curiosity, creativity, and a lifelong passion for learning in my students. Together, we will celebrate their achievements, embrace challenges, and build a strong foundation for their future success.
