Welcome to the orchestra! I am excited to be teaching orchestra in the Chandler Unified School District. Learning to play an instrument opened up a whole world of sound, new friends, and a lifelong love of music. I hope that I can pass on this love of music to my very special orchestra students.

Our class moto is, "I am Kairos" which means students are encouraged to be extraordinary in their daily lives. Check out the Kairos link: https://www.cusd80.com/Page/83677.

Welcome to Speech & Language Therapy with Mrs. Fruit! I am excited to work with your student for the upcoming 2020-2021 school year at Auxier Elementary School!

My Education and Professional Background

My name is Paige Fruit and I am one of the speech-language pathologists at Auxier Elementary for the 2020-2021 school year. I grew up in a suburb of Minneapolis, Minnesota and attended the University of Wisconsin- Eau Claire for both my Bachelor's and Master's programs. I graduated with my Master's Degree in May of 2020. I am so excited to begin my career with Chandler Unified School District! I am a licensed speech-language pathologist with the Arizona Department of Health Services and the Arizona Department of Education. My husband and I were ready to replace the sub-zero midwest winters for some desert sun, so we recently made the move to Mesa at the beginning of June 2020! We have enjoyed our time in the heat and exploring everything the Phoenix area has to offer.

Hello all! Welcome to my website. Here you will find some of the songs and resources from the music classes we have together.

My Education and Professional Background



My Educational Philosophy

My educational philosophy is that music and art is essential to the development and education of all children, and it should be applied equally and to everyone. Some of the principles I teach by are: Music should always be a positive experience, Learning is a collective experience, not “person in charge and person following”, Children are inherently musical, All children are at different levels, and that should be accepted AND planned for, As a teacher I am part of the child’s path, The student’s experience is the MOST important, Children are human beings and people, and I am not better than children, Trust is essential to a student’s experience in a classroom, I will never be a perfect teacher, and finally I should always be learning and growing.

Welcome to 6th Grade! Students will be experiencing reading genres of all types, hands-on projects, and in depth writing assignments. Sixth grade is a special time because it is a bridge between elementary and middle school. Students will be guided both academically and socially and encouraged throughout the year to become more independent.

Welcome!

Welcome to Auxier Elementary. My name is Lindsay Leischner and I’m so blessed to be a teacher in the Chandler District. Teaching is my heart and soul; I can’t imagine doing anything else. It’s my heart's desire to educate and help students become successful. I believe in every child and know they can be what their heart desires.

My Education and Professional Background



My Educational Philosophy

My teaching philosophy is that I believe every child can be successful. School can be challenging for some students but that doesn’t mean that they can’t be successful in some way. My passion is to teach kids not only academics but also to be leaders of this world. Every child deserves an education and to have a teacher that will push them to their very best. It’s my job to be their leader and role model before they are able to do it themselves. I love my job and I can’t imagine being anywhere else.

Welcome!

Hello! My name is Amy Losey! I am so excited to teach first grade at Auxier! I absolutely love teaching children to read! I can’t wait to get to know my students so our fun journey can begin! I am from Ohio and grew up in Arizona. I have been happily married to my husband for 17 years! We have three beautiful children. Our family lives in Mesa. We love to do fun things together every chance we get! We have 2 dogs and 2 cats. Our boxer is the favorite, but don’t let the others know!

My Education and Professional Background

I graduated from Arizona State University in 2003 with a degree in Early Childhood Education. I received a Master’s in Education with a Reading Specialization from Northern Arizona University in 2005. I have taught kindergarten at Eduprize School for 6.5 years, both the Gilbert and Queen Creek campuses. In 2011, I opened Lovebugs Learning Center, LLC. I had an amazing time developing a rich curriculum with hands-on activities for my school. I taught 3 and 4 year-olds for four years. In 2014 I decided it would be the last year for my preschool and I would be returning to a school. I feel so lucky to be part of the Auxier family!

My Educational Philosophy

I believe each child is different. Every child is made up of qualities unique to themselves. It is my job to provide a safe learning environment where children are free to take risks and it is ok to make mistakes. I am passionate about tapping into their individual interests! It is my job to teach them the important components of the kindergarten program at Auxier, while also inspiring them to love learning! Being a teacher means so much to me! I am so happy to say - I am working my dream job! I absolutely love working with children!
