About Mari Aguirre-Acedo...
Position: Intermediate ELD Specialist
Welcome to ELD! We are going to have a fabulous year! I am excited to have new and rich experiences through a variety of literature and writing opportunities. I am looking forward to working with your child and learning from them as well. Feel free to contact me at any time.
My Education and Professional Background
I started my teaching career in January 1992 in Phoenix, AZ. I have taught grades 3-6, been a reading specialist, reading coach and a reading program facilitator. I received both my bachelor's in Elementary Education and my Master's in Bilingual/Multicultural Education from Northern Arizona University. I have a reading endorsement, a Spanish endorsement, a language arts endorsement, and a full bilingual endorsement.
My Educational Philosophy
My philosophy is very simple. I believe that every child deserves an opportunity to learn. I believe that every child regardless of their socioeconomic status, language status, or educational status can and will learn in my classroom.
