About Ms. Trejo...
Hello and welcome to Sixth Grade! I cannot tell you how excited I am to begin this journey with you and your students. I'm looking forward to a wonderful year of growth!
My Education and Professional Background
I got my degree in Elementary and Special Education as well as my Early Childhood Education Certificate from Northern Arizona University. Throughout my time in Flagstaff I worked with children age 3- 13 in over six different schools of varying demographics. I completed my student teaching placements in both a 1st grade classroom and a 12th grade resource room. I was then hired into the Chandler Unified School District as a resource teacher at Ira A. Fulton Elementary for one year where I taught kids K-6 and then one year at Weinberg. I could not be more excited to teach at Rice!
My Educational Philosophy
I am a huge advocate for individualized education. Every child is different in their specific needs and strengths. Students need to feel that they are important, their strengths and needs are important, and that their individual progress is something worth monitoring and celebrating. I will always allow my students the opportunity to take part in their own goals. Creating a classroom environment that is comforting and safe for all of my students, while allowing them the freedom to discover things about themselves and the world around them is my main priority!
