About Mrs. Stephanie Palomarez...
Position: 6th Grade Teacher
Phone: (480) 224-3585
Welcome to 6th Grade! My name is Stephanie Palomarez and I will be your child's homeroom teacher for the 2022-2023 school year. I am excited to get to know you and your family throughout our time together.
My Education and Professional Background
I began teaching in 2004 and have taught Kindergarten, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and now 6th grades! I grew up in Scottsdale, AZ and after graduating from high school, I attended ASU and got my bachelors in Elementary Education with an emphasis on Early Childhood Education. I am currently pursuing my Master's Degree in Educational Leadership through NAU with the hopes of one day moving into administration.
My Educational Philosophy
I believe that each child is a unique individual who needs a secure, caring, and stimulating atmosphere in which to grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically, and socially. Helping students to develop a deep love and respect for themselves, others, and their environment is an ongoing process throughout the year. When the voice of each student is heard, an environment evolves where students feel free to express themselves. I believe children have greater respect for their teachers, their peers, and the lessons presented when they feel safe and sure of what is expected of them. In setting fair and consistent rules initially and stating the importance of every activity, students are shown respect for their presence and time. In turn they learn to respect themselves, others, and their environment.
