Mrs. Naomi Arnold

     My name is Naomi Arnold. This is my fourteenth year teaching. This is my second year at Union Park teaching 1st grade. I was previously at Canyon Springs where I taught seven years of kindergarten, three years of first grade and two years of second grade. Before beginning my career in Elementary Education I taught preschool for three years. I graduated from California State Polytechnic University, Pomona with a Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies in December of 2005. I earned a Masters of Early Childhood Education in Curriculum and Instruction from Arizona State University in December of 2009. I currently hold early childhood, gifted and English as a second language endorsements.

     I am orginally from CA and moved to AZ in 2007. Much of my family still lives in CA so I go visit often. I have been married to my husband (Jason) for almost 9 years! We have boy/girl twins (Makenzi and Ryder) that are 7. They are in the 1st grade Spanish Immersion program and love coming to school with mommy. All of us are looking forward to many more adventure as Toros! My family also consists of two cats (Simba and Nala).

      In my free time I love spending time with my family and friends. I love watching TV and movies (more than I should), reading when I can, playing games, doing puzzles, and supporting our AZ sports teams. I also enjoy listening to country music, drinking a Starbucks coffee, and shopping at Kohl's, Old Navy and Target.

      I am so excited to continue my journey here at Union Park and the great adventure that is ahead! Once again, welcome to my class, I am thrilled to have you!
