Ms. Maria Langis
Welcome! My name is Maria Langis. This will be my second year teaching Kindergarten at Copper Creek and my 8th year teaching Kindergarten in Arizona. I love Copper Creek! I am a native to Southern California and moved to Tucson in 2013. I lived in Central Tucson and moved to Oro Valley 2 years ago. I absolutely love it here! My husband John and I have a beautiful 6 year old boy, 2 dogs, and a Greek restaurant by the UofA. I look forward to another fun year in Kindergarten!!
Defining Moment in Education:
Core Educational Belief:
I believe that all humans are always learning and growing. However, in the early years their ability to learn and grow is exponential! I believe people (especially young children) learn best by exploring their world through their senses and making real life connections.
I taught preschool for 12 years in California (2 year olds, 3 year olds, and Pre-K.) This will be my 8th year teaching Kindergarten.
