About Mrs. Veronica Foster...
Position: 3rd Grade Teacher
Hello and welcome to 3rd grade! I am so excited to be here at Patterson and look forward to working together with you to make this year a fun and engaging experience for your child. I live in Gilbert with my husband and we have 4 amazing children. In my spare time, I love being with my family, gardening, reading and any kind of crafts.
My Education and Professional Background
I graduated from ASU with a degree in Anthropology. I began my career working at CUSD in 2003 as a Para and moved on to substitue teaching. I loved the school environment and working with the students so much that I went back and got my Master's in Elementary Education and am proud to be starting my 10th year.
My Educational Philosophy
I have always had a love of learning. As a teacher I hope I can instill this love of learning to my students. I believe in a safe and caring classroom where we can build relationships to help all students be successful.I work hard all year building a classroom that encourages respect, trust, and a sense of ownership among students. I can only hope that I will inspire my students in a way that creates not only a stimulating environment, but an environment in which they can be creative and thrive.
