Ms. Elyse Greenberg
This is my eighth year teaching and my eighth year at Donaldson. I taught first grade for four years and this is my fourth year teaching kindergarten. I am looking forward to another great year! I was born and raised in Tucson, Arizona. I attended the University of Arizona and graduated in May 2011 with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Elementary Education. I then went on to get earn my Masters Degree in Elementary Education from Northern Arizona University in May 2014. I also have my Early Childhood Endorsement.
Since I was a little girl, I have always wanted to be an elementary teacher. I can't picture myself doing anything else! Outside of teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, going to U of A basketball games, going out to eat, baking, traveling, shopping, browsing Teachers Pay Teachers and Pinterest, and doing crafty things (mostly for school). :-)
I am constantly reflecting on my classroom, my teaching practices, and my students. I love to learn and find and/or create new 'things' to implement in my classroom so that all of my students can learn and grow academically, emotionally, and socially. I create a positive and fun learning environment where students truly want to learn. I believe kindergarten is the most imperative year in elementary school because it truly sets the foundation for a child's education. Therefore, I want to make it the best, most successful year for my kindergarteners so that they want to continue to learn and grow, and be successful in their future.
