Welcome to 5th Grade!! We are fearless!!!

My Education and Professional Background

Hello! My name is Kayla Jacobs and I have been teaching for Chandler Schools since 1996. I have taught 2nd grade, 4th grade and now I am loving 5th grade. I have a BS in Psychology from A S U. Prior to teaching, I worked in the community mental health sector for Wayland Family Center for seven years as an in-home counselor. I worked with children ages 6-17 providing individual and group counseling as well as teaching parenting classes as part of a research study on childhood depression. I also spent several years as a Social Worker as part of the Pinal County Behavioral Health System. I love Tarwater and I have been here since its doors opened in 1998!

My Educational Philosophy

I absolutely love teaching 5th grade! My heart is with each and every student. Not only do I provide an environment rich in academics and opportunities for learning, but I also am responsible for providing an atmosphere of acceptance, safe for risk taking and a place to be where they know they are valued!
