Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Lia House
Hello! My name is Lia House, and I will be teaching your child this year. I am an Arizona native, and I grew up attending school in the Deer Valley School District. I attended Northern Arizona University where I received my bachelors degree in education, and a masters degree in reading.
I have been teaching in the Deer Valley District for the last 25 years. I have taught kindergarten, second, and third grade. I have spent most of my teaching career in second and third grade. I have been teaching third grade the last six years at Highland Lakes, and I am really enjoying it! I believe in a well-balanced classroom that provides a respectful, safe, fun, yet disciplined environment to maximize learning. I set high expectations for the class, keeping in mind what is developmentally appropriate for the child. I feel that teaching the content areas with varying methods (hands-on activities, exploration, inquiry, small group activities, individual assignments, etc.) provides children multiple opportunities to learn. My goal is to prepare your child academically and socially for fourth grade. I am very excited to work with your child and watch them grow to their full potential. I know this is going to be a fun year filled with many memorable days.
