About Tori Rupa...
Welcome to 6th grade! I'm looking forward to the new school year and working with your child this year. Many exciting learning experiences await your sixth grader!
My Education and Professional Background
I graduated from Brigham Young University with a Bachelors in Elementary Education. Although I loved teaching 2nd grade and 4th grade when I lived in Texas, 6th grade has found a special place in my heart ever since I moved to Arizona in 2006. I consider myself a "Patterson original" since I helped open the school in 2008. I've watched the immense growth that has made this school what it is today.
My Educational Philosophy
Every child can learn, grow, and be successful when given the right tools to be a life long learner.
