My Education and Professional Background

My Educational Philosophy

Our students succeed when they feel safe and valued in their environment, and I hope to continue to foster this culture here at Sanborn. I believe each student deserves to be seen, heard, and accepted in the fullness of who they are. My person-centered approach emphasizes building positive and trusting relationships with students and families. I also utilize a trauma informed lens to bridge gaps and minimize barriers impacting our students' success. With attention towards social emotional skills and mental wellness, students can leave Sanborn as well-rounded humans, capable of navigating whatever comes next!

I believe all children can learn and it is our job as educators to find out what motivates and inspires each one of our students to learn in order to support them in realizing their dreams. A successful school is a place where genuine relationships are built between all stakeholders and honest and open communication is the norm.

My Educational Philosophy

Hello, my name is Margie Schlechty. I began teaching Preschool at Sanborn Elementary in 2020. However, I am an experienced five year preschool teacher, coming from the Wilson Head Start program in Phoenix. For years, I taught three and four year old children in my own home preparing them for kindergarten. I graduated 2011, from Northern Arizona University with my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education, received several endorsements in Early Childhood Education, as well as English Instruction (SEI). By letting children interact by themselves, it lets me see how they are exploring in their environment. We will do many STEM projects, hands-on learning, as well as focus on fundamental academic skills. One of my strongest beliefs is that children learn from their environment. We will be outside exploring nature as well as how to socially interact with each other through stories, singing and dancing. This is the beginning for your child to start their love for learning.

Welcome to Miss Verplank’s 2nd grade classroom! I am so excited to spend this year helping your child learn, grow, and have fun! I love working with the little ones and couldn’t see myself doing anything else!

My Education and Professional Background



My Educational Philosophy

One of my main goals as a teacher is to help my students love school and love coming to class. I believe that if students are excited to come to school then they will want to do well in school! I also believe students learn the most when they can participate and are involved in lessons. Benjamin Franklin once said, “Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.” I always reflect on how I can make a lesson more hands-on or engaging for my students. Overall, I believe a successful classroom is where everyone is interested, participating, having fun, being respectful, and showing growth along the way!

My Educational Philosophy

It is my belief that children need to be empowered to believe in themselves. They must know that regardless of circumstance they can achieve their goals, whatever they may be. My teaching practices foster a sense of resilience and independence both in their academics and in life. In order to promote this confidence my classroom provides a fun learning environment where students feel safe to take risks and make mistakes without fear of judgment. Students will learn what it means to be a citizen of our community and world by learning how to accept people’s differences, work together cooperatively and be problem solvers. My intent is for children to leave me happy and driven with a love for knowledge, people and exploration.

Welcome To Our Fantastic 5th Grade Classroom!!

My Education and Professional Background

I began working in the Chandler District as a kindergarten aide at Humphrey Elementary. I was with kindergarten for 3 years before I began working toward my degree in teaching. In the fall of 2005, I did my student teaching (4th grade) at Humphrey Elementary and graduated with my degree from Ottawa University. Following that, I was then hired at Sanborn in December for a position in resource, working with 5th and 6th graders. At the end of that school year, I was hired back at Sanborn to teach 3rd grade. I taught 3rd grade for 10 years, 4th grade for 4 years, and taught 2nd grade this past year (all at Sanborn!). I will begin my 16th year teaching 5th grade for the 21-22 school year.

My Educational Philosophy

I believe in students believing in themselves. There is no stronger power than that to help them on their paths to their own successes. I want to provide opportunities for my students to share their thoughts and ideas in a safe, learning environment. When alternate ideas and thought processes are shared, it not only builds stronger connections to one another, but also gives my students several strategies to help them operate in the world around us. I believe in the power of shared learning and working as a team, as well as the power of each individual student. I enjoy seeing things through the eyes of my students and spending time with each one to understand how they think and reflect on their learning. I work hard to help struggling students master concepts and challenge those who are ready for it. Seeing the looks of success and inspiration on my students’ faces makes every day a gift.

It is my responsibility to discover their individual strengthens as well as their needs. I can then focus on these strengths and help students use them to their best advantage. It is important for me to be flexible and consistently monitor the learning environment. I will adjust my teaching to maximize the learning of every student. Most importantly, I understand that in order to be a great teacher, I must continue to be an active learner.

Welcome!

Welcome! I am excited to be part of Sanborn Sun’s Family as your child’s sixth grade teacher. I look forward to working with you and your child this school year.

My Education and Professional Background

I earned a Bachelor’s in Liberal Arts in 1991 and a Master of Science in Education with a specialization in Learning Handicapped in 1998 from Mount St. Mary’s College in Los Angeles, California. Over the course of two decades, I have taught fourth through eighth grade as a general education teacher as well as special education K-8 as a resource specialist. In 2012, I was named a Rodel Exemplary Teacher by the Rodel Foundation of Arizona. When I am not devoting my time to my classroom and the needs of my students, I like to read, go to the movies, travel to exotic places and spend time with my husband.
