    Welcome to 2nd grade! My name is Mrs. Muraco. I enjoy reading, spending time outdoors, and having movie nights with my family. I am married and have 2 sons. I am thrilled to be teaching at Riggs Elementary. I know this is going to be an amazing year together. I am excited to share my love of teaching and learning with you.

    My Education and Professional Background

    I graduated from The University of North Dakota in 2005 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education. I decided to escape the cold winters and move to Arizona to begin my teaching career. I spent 8 years teaching 2nd grade in Mesa and transferred to Chandler Public Schools in 2013. I taught 2nd grade for 2 years in Chandler before moving to Missouri. My family and I returned to Arizona in 2018 and I was lucky enough to come back and teach in Chandler. I am so excited to be a part of the 2nd grade team at Riggs!

    My Educational Philosophy

    I strive to provide a positive classroom where all students feel safe and excited to learn. I believe that it is important to engage in what you are learning, so I try and make things meaningful to students and explain how the material being taught can be used in daily life. I also feel it is important to persevere and understand that it is okay to try things many times before getting it right. Kindness is also something I expect everyone to practice in and out of the classroom. When we focus on kindness, trying our best, and perseverance, we can do anything.
