About Giovanni Bruno...
Position: 6th Grade Teacher
Welcome to Mr. Bruno's 6th Grade Class! I am so excited to be your child's 6th grade homeroom/math teacher this year!
I was born and raised in Northern California and moved to Arizona in 2003. I attended Weinberg Elementary from 3rd-5th grade, Payne Jr. High, and Basha High School. It brings me joy to now be an educator in the district I attended while growing up.
When I'm not teaching, I love spending time with my friends and family. I enjoy cooking/baking, going to concerts, movies, and traveling. Europe is on my bucket list; I'm hoping to cross the Atlantic in the next couple of years!
Looking forward to a great school year ahead!
My Education and Professional Background
I graduated from Arizona State University in 2017 with my bachelor's degree in Tourism and in 2022 with my master's degree in Elementary Education. This is my second year teaching at Tarwater and in the Chandler Unified School District. Go Toros!
My Educational Philosophy
My educational philosophy is that each child is a unique individual who requires a safe and welcoming classroom environment in which to grow and mature from a primary to secondary education mindset. I believe as an educator that I need to help students reach their greatest potential by providing an environment that promotes conversation, community, and collaboration.
I believe students need to respect others as they wish to be treated, be held responsible for their actions and behavior, maintain integrity, live courageously, and have compassion towards themselves and others.
