Mrs. January Multhup


Hello!  My name is January Multhup and I’m so excited to be teaching first grade at Copper Creek Elementary School!  My husband and I are native Arizonans.  He is a Lumberjack alumnus and I am a Wildcat - Bear Down!  We have two children in seventh and fourth grade, and our family loves reading, Star Wars, and baseball - Go Dbacks!

Defining Moment in Education

I have always loved learning.  If I could, I would be a student forever!  I was very blessed to receive an exemplary education.  I hope, in turn, to provide the same for others.  Teaching gives me the gift of learning every day and allows me to make a positive difference in others lives.  Best of all, it’s fun!

Core Educational Belief

My core educational belief stems from developmental learning.  I believe every child will succeed when taught with attention to their own individual abilities.  We can learn in so many ways, and every child deserves the chance to feel a sense of pride and accomplishment for reaching their goals.  I also believe in nurturing the whole child so they are growing academically, physically, socially, and emotionally.
