Mrs. Hatfield

Welcome to 2nd Grade at Sierra Verde STEAM Academy. My name is Mrs. Hatfield and I am pleased to be your child’s teacher this year!

I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from Northern Arizona University (go Lumberjacks!) and have been teaching elementary education for 25+ years. Throughout these years I have taught Kindergarten and Second Grade in the Pendergast and Deer Valley School Districts.  I also have an Early Childhood Education endorsement, a Structured English Immersion (SEI) endorsement, and have been a mentor teacher through the Teacher Advancement Program (TAP).  I enjoy teaching and tutoring students and even mentoring other teachers (via TAP) and I am delighted to be teaching at Sierra Verde with this amazing and supportive community.

I am excited about starting the year and I am looking forward to working with you to make this school year a wonderful experience for your child! I love guiding students on their learning journey and instilling a love of learning and confidence in themselves! I believe in meeting students where they are and taking them as far as I can during our academic year together. Students should feel assured that I believe in them and their abilities.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you in advance for your support as we work together to help ensure your child’s success. I am looking forward to a memorable and amazing year!

The best ways to reach me and stay informed throughout the year:
