My name is Julie Letofsky. I am so happy to teach your children and work with you this year.

My Education and Professional Background

I always wanted to be a teacher. I studied elementary education at the University of Northern Colorado (B.A.1980) and at Arizona State University (M.Ed. 1988). I achieved National Board Certification as an Early Childhood Generalist in 1997, in 2007, and again in 2017. I hold Arizona certifications in early childhood education, elementary education, Structured English Immersion, and as a reading specialist. I’ve taught kindergarten, first, and second grade children in my 34-year career, including 27 years in the Kyrene School District. This is my first year at Sanborn and I’m happy to join this lovely school community.

My Educational Philosophy

I love working with young children! They are full of energy and enthusiasm. They love to learn, just as I do. (They also make me laugh a lot!) Our classroom is a safe and respectful place, where children engage in purposeful, focused, and joyful learning activities all day long. Our classroom is a community where different learning styles are recognized and encouraged and where everyone is striving to learn and grow.
