Welcome! I'm Mr. Morris, and I am looking forward to being your child's 6th Grade teacher this year.
My Education and Professional Background
I began my teaching career in Albuquerque, New Mexico in 1997 where I gained experience teaching 4th and 5th grade. In addition, I worked one year as a Technology Coordinator and Title I Writing Specialist. Upon moving to Arizona, I taught at Goodman Elementary here in the Chandler Unified School District. At Goodman, I taught 5th grade for two years and 6th grade for three. I have been here at Tarwater since 2006, where I have spent most of my time in 6th grade with one year in 3rd.
My Educational Philosophy
I love teaching 6th grade. 6th Grade is not only the final year in elementary school; it is a pivotal year in preparing for the responsibilities of junior high and beyond. I believe that it is in 6th grade that students need to take more ownership in their education, and my goal is to assist them in doing so in a positive and supportive environment.
