Hi! I am so excited to be the newest member of Copper Creek's 6th grade team! I previously taught 4th grade for five years, and 5th grade for one year. I have been an involved parent here at Copper Creek as a member of the PTSA board and homeroom parent for the last 6 years. I received my bachelor's degree from Arizona State University in elementary education.

I love being a teacher and coming to work every day. I enjoy inspiring my students to become lifelong learners. My two daughters currently attend Copper Creek and I am so proud of the high quality education they receive here.

Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education Studying towards Master's of education in Educational Technology

Miss Schaefer

This is my fourth year teaching in the Deer Valley district. I taught one year at Paseo Hills Elementary before coming to Copper Creek, where I attended school as an elementary student. I am very excited to have been able to come back as a teacher and be part of such an amazing school community. After three years as a fifth grade teacher, I am looking forward to experiencing the world of 6th grade! I received a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Arizona State University and I am an Arizona native. Currently, I am working on my master's degree in Educational Technology from ASU. I love teaching and motivating my students to become lifelong learners and problem solvers. I am always seeking innovative ways to implement technology into my classroom to engage my students and help them build skills they will need for our ever-evolving technological world.

When I am not teaching, I enjoy heading outdoors with my friends and family - hiking, swimming, days at the lake, or even traveling to the beach. I am also an avid reader, and I hope to instill this love for reading in my students. I am looking forward to a wonderful school year!

➔Graduated from Northern Arizona University, with a Bachelor's Degree in Education with a math emphasis.

➔This is my 25th year teaching and I LOVE teaching Middle School Math!

       ◆I teach math because I feel so many feel they are not good at it and just give up.  I want to change students mindset and let them see it is not as hard as they think, and in the end they are pretty good at it even really liking it.

       ◆It is my goal to make life-long learners while building character.
