About Mrs. Kimberly Pritchard...
Position: 5th Grade
Hello and welcome to 4th grade! I am originally from the tiny Pacific island of Saipan, Northern Mariana Islands. I moved to Arizona in 2012 with my husband, Cole, who is a native of Arizona! I am very excited to be your child's teacher this year. We will have a lot of fun learning and growing together. I am honored to have the opportunity to be a partner in your child's education.
My Education and Professional Background
I have been in education since 2006 as a 2nd grade teacher, elementary school counselor, 5th grade teacher, and 4th grade teacher (MY FAVORITE!). I have been at Conley since 2015. My educational background includes a Bachelor of Psychology from the University of Idaho and a Master's degree in International Education from Framingham State University. I love teaching and learning and plan to continue in this field for many years!
My Educational Philosophy
My educational philosophy begins with encouraging the power and extent of learning for each of my students. I believe that I have a fundamental responsibility to each of my students to teach them the importance of respect and values. I also believe that I have a duty to help my students understand and value the significance of diversity.
