I am Mrs. Villaorduna and I am thrilled to be welcoming you to my class. For those of you returning to Hancock Elementary, we are happy to see you again. If you're new, we're so excited for you to join the Hancock Heat!
My Education and Professional Background
Before entering education, I Graduated from Arizona State University with a Bachelor's of Arts in Political Science and completed a graduate certificate in International Migrations at the Pontificate Catholic University of Peru. I obtained my Master's in Elementary Education from Arizona State University. I am certified for Middle Grades Mathematics 6-8, in addition to Elementary Education.
My Educational Philosophy
I believe education opens doors to worlds of opportunities and possibilities. By creating a classroom where students feel safe and comfortable to become actively engaged in the learning process, I hope to inspire all students to become life-long learners and venture through those doors. In the classroom, I use cooperative learning strategies to create a respectful environment that fosters important 21st century skills of communication and collaboration. I strive to create enduring learning experiences by engaging students with interactive, challenging activities.
