Mrs. Tricia Stewart
Thank you for visiting my web page. I love teaching at Coronado. We truly have the best students. My husband is also a teacher here, this year he is teaching a 4/5 mulitage class. My son is in 6th grade and my daughter is a Freshman at CDO. We have two cats and two dogs. We are a family that truly enjoys our time together. We love to play games, go swimming, hiking and watch movies. We also love to go camping as often as we can; to state parks, the beach and the mountains. Last year we did a cross country trip to Disney World. In my free time, I enjoy reading, scrapbooking, trying out a new craft or going for a nice long walk.
Defining Moment in Education
My definining moment is not a single moment but many moments in my career; when students makes more than expected growth, a class that is collaborative and enthusiastic about their learning, a kind note from a parent expresssing appreciation or a meeting with a collegue that helps to push me to the next level in my teaching. It is all of these moments together that inspire me and remind me that I am exactly where I am meant to be.
Core Educational Belief
I strive to be the teacher that I want my own children to have. A classroom should be a place where a child is respected, challenged, encouraged and supported. A place where they learn to love learning and are inspired to be their best.
I have taught all 18 years at Amphitheater School District. I began my career at Holaway Elementary. There I taught Cross Categorical Special Education, a K/1 class, Second grade but most of the years in First grade. Then I taught 2 years of First grade at Mesa Verde. I was thrilled to be hired at Coronado in 2013. I have taught several multiage classes and Third grade which I love the most.
