Phone: (480) 424-8561
Hello! My name is Amy Losey! I am so excited to teach kindergarten at Rice Elementary! 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 Rice 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 Rice, 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!
