Welcome!

5th and 6th graders are welcome to join band. It is an opportunity to learn something new and fun! We learn how to play the instruments, read musical notation, and how to care for the instrument. Playing in band develops self-confidence, responsibility, and requires the students to work cooperatively as a team. We give concerts during the school year and also play at flag raising assemblies. I hope to see you in band!

My Education and Professional Background

My Educational Philosophy

All children should have the opportunity to learn about music and how to play an instrument. Music forces the brain to work in full capacity. Music speaks beyond the spoken word, and across cultures. We must keep music in our schools so culture is not lost. No matter what your skill level is, I would like to help you learn.

My Educational Philosophy

Each child is an individual and an important part of our school! I am here to encourage, prepare and equip each child with strategies and skills which will enable them to be successful academically. I will provide an environment that supports risk-taking, and helps each student reach their fullest potential. Respect, appreciation and kindness is part of our daily routine. Each day is a new beginning to embrace.

Welcome!

Welcome to 3rd Grade! I am excited to teach you many new things. We will have an amazing year of learning.

My Education and Professional Background

I earned a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education in 1986 at the University of West Florida, in Pensacola, Florida. I received my ESL Endorsement from Rio Salado College in 2010. I began teaching at Galveston in 2010. I have 16 years of teaching experience

My Educational Philosophy

I believe that students learn best when they have a positive learning environment where everyone feels safe to share their thinking and ideas. I understand that all students can learn and succeed, but not always in the same way. I differentiate my instruction to fit all learning styles through whole group or small group instruction, one-on-one learning and engaging activities. My hope is that each child is excited to come to school each day and do their personal best.

Welcome!

I have been teaching for more than 20 years in the Chandler Unified School District. Galveston is my school of choice! My daughter attended all her elementary years at Galveston. She now attends high school in the Chandler District.

My Education and Professional Background

I received my Associates of Art degree from Mesa Community College because I promised myself I would graduate from MCC. Once I decided to become a teacher, I attended Arizona State University for my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Elementary Education. I decided to become a principal, and received my Masters in Educational Leadership for Northern Arizona University. I have since decided that the classroom is where my interests lie, and have chosen not to go into administration.

My Educational Philosophy

Children are naturally curious. It is a joy to see them learn, understand, and grow. They learn best when they feel safe and accepted. I strive to have a welcoming community in my classroom.

Learning is a lifetime process about new strategies and coping, learning from parents, colleagues, and especially learning from children.

Every child has the potential to bring something unique and special to the world.

Welcome!

Welcome! My name is Ms. Lim and I am excited to join the Chandler Unified School District. It's going to be a great year and fun to work with you all. Be ready to learn as we explore the world of orchestral music.

My Education and Professional Background

I graduated from Arizona State University with a BA in Music Education with an emphasis in strings. During those years I was involved in the ASU symphony, small chamber ensembles, and performed solo recitals. I was also involved in The String Project of ASU where I taught both private lessons and classes. Before CUSD, I worked two years in the Kyrene District as a middle school Orchestra and Guitar director.

My Educational Philosophy

I believe that everyone is capable and that we can accomplish goals if we fix our minds to it, especially in music. I love music and strive to inspire others to appreciate it too. Music can teach a child discipline, patience, team work, eye-hand coordination, and it can build a strong character. Music is truly universal and being involved musically can be a great way to be a part of the musical world around us.
