Miss Annie John
Welcome to Copper Creek and Keeling's REACH webpage!
My name is Annie John, and I am excited to be a part of the amazing journey your child will be on this year. I have been a student or teacher every year since I was four years old (K-12 + College + Teaching + Post-grad), and this will be my 36th first day of school! I have been teaching for 14 years, including many years in the gifted realm.
I love living in the Oro Valley community, a few minutes from work (my commute in Seattle was over 90 minutes!), and ten minutes from my favorite stores (Target and Starbucks). My daughter and I enjoy traveling, card making, watching movies, and singing in the car. However, my favorite thing to do is watch hockey (Go Roadrunners!) -- I have season tickets, so expect to see me whenever you come to a game!!
This year is filled with excitement, as we will be doing an abundance of STEAM. When you enter the REACH room, you will see students collaborating, supporting each other, and most of all - learning with enthusiasm. My greatest joy is seeing the light bulb go off in a student's mind when they have an "a-ha" moment - it means they finally understand a concept they have been struggling with! I'm excited to see thousands of a-ha moments, even on the first day of school.
Please, never hesitate to contact me for any reason - we are partners in this journey! I'm looking forward to this year!
