|Position:||3rd Grade Teacher|
Hello and Welcome to 3rd Grade! My name is Stacy White and I am so excited about being your child's teacher this year! Born a Chicago Bears fan, I moved from Midwestern Illinois to sunny Arizona in 2003 with my husband and three daughters. Now I am a grandmother of 3 beautiful children who keep me happy and busy! Although we are considered empty nesters, we have 3 dogs that keep us on our toes!
My Education and Professional Background
I graduated from the University of Illinois with a Special Education degree. Over the years, I have been a Head Start coordinator, Special Education Teacher, Girl Scout leader for nine years, Substitute teacher, and here in AZ, a para educator for both special ed. and regular ed. classes, an Elementary Ed. teacher and Dean of Students. I know I was born to be a teacher because no matter what role I was employed or volunteered for, working with children and their families always filled my heart with joy!
My Educational Philosophy
When I was in 3rd grade, I told my parents that I will be a special education teacher when I grow up and help change the way others accept these unique learners. I believe that ALL students can learn and succeed given the encouragement and opportunity to reach their highest academic achievements! Every child is unique and sometimes finding the ingredient that helps make learning make sense is one of a teacher's most important goal. Creating a warm and caring classroom environment for ALL students is extremely important for me to create positive relationships for educational growth! I will do everything in my power to help my students achieve their potential both academically and socially!
