My name is Kristie Fassette and I will be your child's teacher this year. I am excited to meet you and I know we will have a great year together! I began my teaching career here in the Deer Valley Unified School District 26 years ago. I have taught second grade for 12 years, third grade for 3 years and 3 years in kindergarten. (In the middle years I stayed home and enjoyed raising my son and daughter!) I hold a Master’s Degree in Elementary Education and I also have a Reading and an Early Childhood Endorsement. I am currently working on obtaining my gifted endorsement.
When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two children. My daughter Alexis is a freshman at the University of AZ and my son Jayden is a junior in high school. They are very active so we spend a lot of time at tennis matches. We also enjoy camping, boating and traveling together. My camera is always ready for the next shot! Some of my passions are scrapbooking, reading, running and hiking. I am so excited to be teaching here at Sonoran Foothills! I love teaching and have lots of creative plans for enriching your child's second grade year. I hope you can volunteer in our classroom to see all the exciting lessons taking place!
