Welcome!

Hi! My name is LeAnn Tucker. I am so excited to be your 5th grade Reading and Science teacher. I grew up in a small town in East Tennessee. I lived in Florida for the past 3 years and just relocated to Arizona this summer. I am married and have 3 awesome kids; Kylie, Colton, and Kinley. My favorite things are my family, the beach, coffee, and of course teaching! I love being and teacher and helping my students succeed! I look forward to meeting and getting to know each of you!

My Education and Professional Background

I graduated from East Tennessee State University in 2016 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education. I taught 4th grade Math and Science while I lived in Tennessee. In Florida I taught all subjects in 4th grade for 2 years. I have just started my Master’s degree program for Educational Leadership at the American College of Education.

My Educational Philosophy

I believe education is not a standard for all individuals. I think that is something that looks very different for each and every student. Our job as educators is to find out the different ways each of our students learn and try and implement different strategies and best practices that will help students reach their full academic potential. Building relationships are also a key component to helping your students; knowing their likes and dislikes, what motivates them and what doesn’t. It is important to make sure your students know that you as their teacher truly care about them as a who individual and that they are not just number or a data statistic. While data is important to help establish where students are and what goals to set for them, it does not define them as a person.
