Hello! My name is Kelsey Spear and I am the main 4th Grade teacher at Desert Willow! :)
If you have been in DWES for a couple years you would know that I was a 4th grade teacher only 2 years ago as a new teacher! Last year I was teaching 2nd grade with the great 2nd grade team but now have come back to 4th grade to be the main non-Immersion teacher.
I loved teaching 4th grade my first year here at DWES and am excited to start the year with a fresh new batch of students. I know if it is under different circumstances. I hope to make every students 4th grade year a postive and engaging experience for both students and our parents.
A little background about me is I was born and raised in Puyallup, Washington (state not capital!). In my spare time, I love trying new things! Whether it is going on an adventure or trying something new at a restaurant, I like to keep my mind open to new experiences and possibilities. I am a big fan of sports (Seattle anything!) so talk to me about your favorite sports team next time you see me! If you have been my student before you know I love to brag about my 3 nephews and love spending time with them as much as possible!
I moved here to Arizona in 2012 and studied at Arizona State University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education.
I am still newly graduated as I have said, but the past 2 years have taught me so much and with the support from both the parents and fellow teachers here at DWES, I have only grown my love of teaching and collaborating with students. A teacher is always learning so I can't wait to learn new things along with your students!
