Hello, Santan Stormers! My name is Maureen Groessl and I am super excited to be your Media Specialist. I have been in education since 1996 and before becoming the media specialist, 12 of those years were here at Santan, where I taught 2nd and 3rd grade. I also taught in the Kyrene School District and Mesa Public Schools as a teacher and Reading Specialist. I am looking forward to a fabulous school year!
My Education and Professional Background
I graduated from Ottawa University with my Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education. I continued my education by getting my master's degree in education at NAU. I also have a Reading Specialist Endorsement, English as a Second Language Endorsement, and an Early Childhood Endorsement.
My Educational Philosophy
My goal is to help each student excel and achieve maximum potential by creating a welcoming learning environment and fostering a love of reading. I will promote the value of the library as an accessible source of information for lifelong learning and stimulate interest in reading for pleasure.
