Mrs. Lindsay Wong
I love being part of the kind and supportive Harelson community, and I am honored to be your child's 5th grade teacher! This is going to be an amazing, exciting, and memorable year for your child--filled with lots of learning, growth, and fun!
I am married with three amazing children of my own, all of whom are very successful students within the Amphitheater School District. I spent the majority of my childhood growing up in Las Vegas, Nevada, where I graduated from the Las Vegas Academy of the Arts High School. I have played the violin since I was ten years old (and a few other instruments along the way), so music is near and dear to my heart. I moved to Tucson over 20 years ago to attend college, and I have enjoyed living here ever since. Last, but most certainly not least, I am a very proud graduate of the University of Arizona! Go Cats!
I am such a big fan of the Amphitheater School District! Over the years, my own children have attended Harelson and Walker Elementary, Cross Middle School, and my two oldest children are now attending Canyon Del Oro High School. I student taught in 1st Grade at Mesa Verde Elementary, taught 5th Grade at Wilson K-8, and have been thrilled to teach 5th Grade here at Harelson ever since. I have seen so much incredible love and learning in the Amphitheater School District, and as a parent and teacher I am very proud to be part of it.
Core Educational Beliefs
I believe that all students can learn and succeed, even though they may learn best in different ways and with different supports. I believe that children should be supported in developing a growth mindset, and I strive every day to inspire and empower my students to work hard, be proud, and achieve academic success. I have had many incredible teachers who have shown me the joy in learning, and I am so happy that I can pass that love for education on to my students.
