Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. von Tobel
Welcome Mountain Shadows Coyotes! My name is Mrs. von Tobel and I will be your child’s teacher this year. This is my 20th year of teaching! I have been teaching fourth grade at Mountain Shadows for the last 9 years. I taught third grade for 12 years at Desert Heights Charter School in Glendale before moving to the Deer Valley School District.
I am a graduate from Arizona State University, where I received my Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education in December of 2000. I was born, raised, and educated in Brownsville, Texas, “a city on the border by the sea”, next to South Padre Island. I moved to Arizona in 1989.
I am married and have a daughter who graduated from the University of Arizona in 2013. We have two adorable Shih-Tzu/Poodle dogs, Bubba (13yrs) and Sully (11yrs). My husband and I have a passion for the outdoors. As a family we enjoy hiking, camping, fishing, boating, traveling, and many other outdoor activities. I am looking forward to a successful year with my students!
