About Mrs. Frazier...

Team/Department: 6th Grade
Phone: (480) 883-4733
My name is Audra Frazier and this will be my 2nd year at Santan, but my 8th year teaching. My husband and I are (Western) New York natives and we moved to Arizona in 2014. I guess you could say we traded snow-tires for a sunroof. We have 6 year old twins that keep us very busy. They will be in 1st grade this year, so you may get a chance to meet them as well! We also have a very patient and lovable 16 year old dog named Pita.
My Education and Professional Background
I graduated from a college near my hometown, called Fredonia, where I received my Masters in Inclusive Education. When we moved here in 2014, I started my career in Scottsdale School District. I spent 7 years at the same school. I taught for three years as a 3rd grade teacher, and three years as a reading/math interventionist. I am very excited about continuing teaching 6th grade and I can't wait to be a part of your child's educational journey!
My Educational Philosophy
My educational philosophy and goal for teaching, is to create a community within our classroom, to have all students enjoy learning, laugh, and reach their goals. Learning takes teamwork. I often like to use a braid when describing this. It is harder to break a braid when all three strands are tied together. Each three strands on the braid are the student, teacher and parents. With us as a team, we can be strong and achieve great success. We're in this together!
