Welcome to Frye Elementary Physical Education. I am looking forward to another fun and exciting year in the fitness world. My goal as a physical education teacher, is to teach students how to live a healthy and active lifestyle.

My Education and Professional Background

I earned my bachelor's degree in Exercise Science from Iowa State University in 2002. I have taught physical education at both the elementary and secondary levels, as well as coached a variety of sports.

My Educational Philosophy

Over many years of teaching physical education, I have discovered that teaching young minds and bodies is not always an easy task. Each day can be filled with many challenges and responsibilities. However, teaching physical education is full of excitement, joy, and smiles. I believe all students can learn and as a teacher it is my job to motivate all learners and challenge them to reach their full potential. My hope is that my love and passion for leading a healthy lifestyle will leave a lasting impression on all of my students.

I love being a reading specialist and coaching the Battle of the Books Teams at Frye Elementary School. If you are looking for a great book to read, just ask, I have plenty to recommend! ! I love teaching reading and my students have heard me say many times that I have the best job in the whole world!

My Education and Professional Background

I attended Western Washington University and completed a B.A. in Elementary Education. I also completed a M.A. Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from City University. I have obtained endorsements in reading, early childhood education, and Sheltered English Immersion. Prior to becoming a Falcon, I taught first grade for thirteen years in Washington State. I was a reading specialist 3rd-5th grade, for five years. Then, I decided to leave the rainy Pacific Northwest and head to the Arizona sunshine. I was a reading specialist at Knox Elementary School from 2004 through the 2011 school year. Then, I jumped back into the classroom and taught third grade for the 2011-2012 school year. The 2012-2013 school year was my first year as a Frye Falcon!

My Educational Philosophy

I believe all children are capable and desire to learn. By planning and executing, data driven, engaging lessons, students will not only advance in their skills, but be motivated learners. All students come to school with talents that need to be celebrated and respected. When students feel they belong, through kind and respectful interactions, they will succeed. I communicate, educate, and guide my students in the same manner I would want for my own children.

Welcome!

I'm the Dean at Frye Elementary. I moved to Arizona in 1993 from Oregon and never looked back, despite the hot, dry Arizona summers. I have been a part of the Frye family since the year 2000. Outside of school, I enjoy reading, going to the movies, traveling to warm beaches, shopping and spending time with family and friends. My husband, Patrick and I live in Ahwatukee with our daughter, Reagan and our three cats.

My Education and Professional Background

I graduated from Oregon State University with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration Finance in 1992. After graduating I realized my true dream was to become an elementary school teacher. I moved to Arizona and graduated from Arizona State University with a Masters of Education in 1995. After graduation I taught in the Kyrene School District for 4 years teaching 3rd and 4th grade. I left the classroom to become a consultant and trainer for the Success for All Foundation (SFAF). I worked with Southern California and Arizona schools to help strengthen their reading program implementation and increase their students' reading success. After a year of traveling, I was ready to go back into the classroom. In the year 2000, I became a 5th grade teacher at Frye Elementary and then after one year I became the Curriculum Specialist. I also have my SEI endorsement and I am trained in Facilitative Leadership, Tribes and DIBLES.

My Educational Philosophy

I believe every child is unique and deserves a caring, inspiring, and engaging atmosphere in which to grow emotionally, intellectually, and socially. As an educator I want to help students meet their fullest potential in these areas by providing a safe, risk-taking, and collaborative environment. I want our students to development positive character and leadership traits which are essential in becoming a productive citizen. I believe a positive elementary education is essential to creating successful life-long learners.

Welcome!

Hello! My name is Miss Long. I am so excited to be joining the Frye family. I absolutely love teaching! It brings me so much joy. My favorite part about teaching is building relationships with my students and helping them succeed in every possible way.

My Education and Professional Background

have been involved in education for the since 2015. I started as a private tutor to students of all ages with disabilities, the majority having dyslexia and ADHD. I then became a paraprofessional in a K-2 CASE classroom. I feel very privileged to have worked with a range of students. It gives me a greater perspective on all students who may have differing ability levels. I earned my dual degree in Elementary and Special Education from Arizona State University.

My Educational Philosophy

I believe that every child can learn and succeed. To do this, they first must be in an environment where they feel comfortable, appreciated, and loved. I do this by getting to know each one of my students and making sure to talk with them each day. By creating this relationship, students will feel that they belong in the classroom and will be willing to learn from me. I also believe that each child learns in their own unique way. If given the proper tools, they can learn and succeed. In my classroom, I use tools that relate to Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences. These include, but are not limited to, visual, kinesthetic (hands-on/movement), verbal, and musical activities. By using a variety of these activities, students are being taught in the best way for them and are staying engaged. Keeping them engaged is so important to me, because it keeps their minds open to learning and growing.
