About Mr. Navarro...
Position: 6th Grade Teacher
Phone: (480) 883-4734
Welcome to 6th grade! I have been at Santan Elementary since 2008 and look forward to having you in my class this year.
My Education and Professional Background
I graduated from Arizona State University in 2007 with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and an Early Childhood Endorsement. I started teaching at Santan in 2008 and have also taught 1st, 2nd, and 4th grades.
My Educational Philosophy
The three most important things I believe in with education are Respect, Responsibility, and Fun. I want my students to learn with these traits in mind, and I focus my teaching on these traits as well. I expect students to respect themselves, their peers, and their education. I want them to be responsible for doing the best they can. And I want them to enjoy as much of the experience as they can. In turn, it is my responsibility to respect their individual personalities and learning styles and to make sure they are able to laugh every day.
