About Nkiruka Aningo...
Position: 5th Grade
Welcome to 5th Grade!
Hello! My name is Ms. Aningo and I am so excited to be your child’s teacher and provide them with many wonderful experiences this year. 5th grade is going to be a blast!
My Education and Professional Background
I recently graduated from Arizona State University's Mary Lou Fulton Teacher's College with my Bachelor's in Elementary Education. I began my teaching career in Chandler Unified School District in 2022. I completed a year long student teaching at Knox Gifted Academy here in the district and learned so much from that experience. I officially began my first year of teaching at Andersen Elementary and I am grateful to be an Andersen Astronaut.
My Educational Philosophy
My goal is to create a classroom that engages and prepares every student to become a life-long learner who is self-reflective, kind and ambitious. I also hope to build relationships through a connected classroom community. I am committed to making sure your child is valued, trusted, and feels they are an integral part of our family of learners. It is my hope that you will support and encourage this vision at home.
