Mrs. Maggie Luke
Welcome to my fourth grade classroom webpage. I am Maggie Luke and have been teaching since 2013. I was born and raised in Catalina, Arizona. I went to Coronado kindergarten through eighth grade. Go Cougars! I met my husband in second grade and many of my lifelong friends at Coronado. It has been a great adventure to come back to work where my life began and where many of my memories originated.
I have two amazing children who attend Coronado. Kayden is in eighth grade and Ryan is in fifth grade. When I am not at school I enjoy camping, hiking, football, softball, and all outdoor activities.
I love watching students capabilities grow; my greatest joy is to see that "aha" moment in each child.
Defining Moment in Education
I originally graduated from Northern Arizona University in 2007 with my Bachelors of Science in Hospitality Management. After many years in the Hotel and Restaurant industry I decided this was not where I wanted to be. I went on a path to self discovery which led me to my lifelong dream to teach. I started out as a substitute while attending school, and this is where I fell in love with teaching.
Core Educational Beliefs
All students learn in different ways. What works for some students, may not work for others. I believe my job as a teacher is to help each child find their special "way" in all aspects of their life.
Before teaching at Coronado, I worked in the Hospitality Industry. I was employed at the Hilton El Conquistador for 7 years and Miraval Resort for 3 years.
