Welcome!

Hello! My name is Ms. Montiel, and I am your new school counselor at Fulton Elementary. As your school counselor I will be an advocate for career development, academic achievement, social behavior, and mental and physical health for all students.I look forward to using my professional background knowledge in guidance counseling to cultivate a stimulating and supportive environment to allow the students Fulton Elementary to reach their fullest potential.

My Education and Professional Background

Originally from Texas I moved to Arizona in 2020. I attended the University of Texas at Rio Grande Valley, and received a Bachelor's Degree in Science with a specialization in Biology. After receiving my bachelor's degree, I enrolled in a post-bachelorette program and received my state certification in science. My additional state certifications include school counseling k-12 and ESL Supplemental. I received my Masters of Education in Counseling and Guidance awarded on December 2017. I am certificated school counselor in both Arizona and Texas. I am a board certified Licensed Professional Counselor in Texas. Prior to becoming a school counselor, I taught 6th and 7th grade science. I also coached 7th and 8th grade girls' volleyball, softball and basketball. I enjoy learning, exploring and traveling. I just finished my first year as a school counselor and have lots to share and still lots to learn.

My Educational Philosophy

My counseling philosophy is based on grit and a growth mind set. Helping students embrace challenges, persist in the face of setbacks, see effort as the path to mastery, learn from criticism, find lessons and inspiration in the success of others and develop a perspective that they do not understand it –YET. Providing the students to have a sense of belonging in the school environment, and having a positive attitude toward work and learning.

Welcome!

Welcome to the 6th grade! I am excited to be starting my 1st year teaching here at Fulton Elementary. My wife, April, and I have three children; James, Andrew and Alexis and we are happy to call Arizona home. I am a huge sports fan and enjoy cheering for the Cubs, Blackhawks, and Bears. Before becoming a teacher, I have spent a considerable amount of time volunteering as a youth coach at a variety of levels.

My Education and Professional Background

I was born and raised in Brookfield, Il, which is a suburb of Chicago and decided to call Arizona home about 15 years ago. I received my Bachelors of Science in Business Administration from Marquette University in Milwaukee, WI and I have spent the last 25 years in a variety of sales, leadership, and training roles in the corporate world.

Welcome!

Welcome to Music! I am thrilled to be a part of the Fulton family this year and excited to delve into the basics of this beautiful art form. In music class, we will learn about music through a variety of experiences. We will be singing, dancing and moving, reading musical notation, playing instruments, listening to music, and analyzing music.

My Education and Professional Background

A Chandler resident for 13 years, I attended Bogle Junior High School and graduated from Hamilton High School in 2010. After high school, I pursued my Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance from Northern Arizona University. Upon completion of my Bachelor's degree, I moved to New York City to obtain my Master of Music in Voice from Mannes School of Music. I am extremely excited to be at Fulton Elementary for my fifth year of teaching and can't wait to inspire hundreds of young musicians!

My Educational Philosophy

There is a simple reason behind my decision to teach. I want to impact lives with the power of musical experience. Teaching is an invitation to a relationship. I invite students into a relationship with music. Music study is an intimate and visceral experience. Through music study we learn about ourselves and about life, a process that is both exhilarating and sometimes difficult. I endeavor to guide students through this process and help them discover a musical voice that is uniquely their own.

Hello! My name is Tonja Pichardo. I am married to a wonderful man, Emil, and we have three wonderful and beautiful children together. We also have five precious little grandchildren. I love to run, read, enjoy the outdoors, and spend time with my family!

My Education and Professional Background

I attended Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana and graduated in 2000 with my BA in Elementary Education. During my senior year at Ball State, I was hired to substitute teach part-time for Muncie Community School District. I loved the schools within my community and knew that I wanted to be part of the district that educated my community and my children. Muncie Community Schools hired me to teach a Basic Skills Math Class for grades 9-12 and from there I moved into the elementary schools where I taught 2nd grade, 3rd grade, 5th grade, and Physical Education for grades K-5. After moving to Chandler, again I wanted to teach in the community where I live. I was hired to teach 2nd grade at Fulton. I have taught 2nd grade, Kindergarten, 1st grade and 6th grade at Fulton Elementary.

My Educational Philosophy

I chose teaching as my career because I have always wanted to give to and serve others. I found that teaching children is a happy and loving way to make this happen. Children say and do the most amazing things! Their abilities are limitless! I truly believe that every child has the ability to learn, and I am happy to be one of the steps along the road of their educational journey.

In addition, it is important to meet the differing needs and abilities of a diverse group of students. I believe all students can succeed and become life long learners and it's the teacher's job to be an intellectual and moral role model for their students. However, teachers are also facilitators, asking questions and making suggestions in order to promote student learning.

Welcome!

My name is Mrs. Hughes, I grew up in Chandler, and attended Dobson High School in Mesa. My husband and I have three beautiful little girls (4 years old, 5 years old, and 1 year old). This makes us a family of 6 (including our fur-baby). In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.

My Education and Professional Background

I received a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education from Arizona State University in 2007, and a Masters in Counseling Psychology from Arizona State University in 2013. Go Devils! This will be my tenth year teaching, and my seventh year at Fulton. This will be my eighth year teaching 4th grade, and I love it!

My Educational Philosophy

In our classroom, we work hard to promote a tight-knit community. We believe in a safe environment. We also believe that parents, teacher, and students must work as a team to achieve our highest potential. Every year is an important year in a child's development into a student, and we truly enjoy being a part of that process.

I graduated from Arizona State University in 1999 after serving as a teacher's aide in first grade for 5 1/2 years. I knew my calling the moment I stepped into the classroom. The pursuit of my Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education made it very clear to me that I loved everything about school. I then went on to garner my Master of Education from Northern Arizona University in 2006. I truly consider myself a lifelong learner. I have been teaching in since 1999. Time flies when you're having fun! I joined the CUSD team in the 2003-2004 school year teaching Kindergarten.

My goal is to help all students find the book lover within. I do everything in my power to provide support, guidance, and learning opportunities for all students. Reading is the gateway to success. I firmly believe every child has the right to a quality education. The skills and support I provide in the library are paramount in that process. What we teach children to love and desire will always outweigh what we make them learn. - Jim Trelease, Read Aloud Handbook
