About Mrs. Adrienne Speer...
Position: Second Grade Teacher
Dear Students and Parents,
I am extremely excited about this school year. We are going to have a great year!
Welcome to Mrs. Speer’s second grade. I am honored that I get to teach you. We are going to work very hard this year, but we are going to have fun as well.
Let me tell you a little bit about myself. This is my 20th year teaching. It is something I absolutely love. This is my 16th year teaching at Chandler Unified School District (CUSD) and my 15th year at Patterson. I have had the privilege of teaching here since the beginning.
I was born in New York and grew up outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I am an only child. I knew when I was 10 years old that I wanted to be a teacher. I went to college in Virginia and met my husband. We moved out here 16 years ago because my husband got a job at Honeywell to work on airplane engines. I have a daughter named Katelyn, who is 13 years old and a son named Lee who is almost 11 years old. I LOVE to read and like to travel. I also like to watch movies and like outside activities.
I am here to help you grow as a person. Please know that I will respect you and expect the same respect in return. At any time you have a question or problem, please come and see me.
We are here to work as a team. I hope you are as ready as I am to start the year off right!
My Education and Professional Background
I received my teaching degree from Radford University in Virginia. I received my master's degree in teaching from NAU in Arizona. I have been teaching since 2003; first in Virginia and then in Arizona. I have been with Chandler since 2007. I taught one year at Weinberg and then Patterson, since it opened in 2008.
My Educational Philosophy
I believe everyone is a life-long learner!
