My name is Rebecca Green.  I have been teaching since August 1995 and I have been teaching at Copper Creek Elementary since August 1999.  I have taught special education (1st - 6th grade), kindergarten, first grade, and second grade in the Deer Valley Unified School District.  I have also taught in the Paradise Valley School District (first, second, and third grade).  I have also taken several classes on teaching gifted students.  

    I am originally from Lakewood, Colorado.  My family still lives there so I try and go there to cool off every summer. I moved out to Arizona to marry my husband, Brian.  We have two delightful sons named David (born in 2003) and Christopher (born in 2008).  If I am not working on things for school I am enjoying time being a wife and mother!

    My philosophy is that all kids want to learn and it is my job is to teach my students to love learning and want to be lifelong learners.  My goal is that every student who comes through my classroom feels good about themselves and reaches their fullest potential.

    I love teaching kindergarten here at Copper Creek because of my wonderful teammates as we plan to make lessons focused on our young learners needs. I strive for excitement of learning with fun and hands-on activities to meet the Kindergarten state standards.

 I am so excited to be your child's teacher this year! Here is a little bit about me.

I have lived in phoenix for 22 years and love calling it my home.  In 2015 I married my husband Ryan and we had our first son (Koen) in 2016. In 2018 we welcomed another baby boy into our family (Devin).  We also have 2 Chihuahuas and one chocolate lab that complete our family. Outside of school I love spending time with my family and friends.  I also enjoy baking, snowboarding, playing volleyball, reading, and decorating.  

In December 2012 I graduated with an honors degree in Early Childhood Education from Arizona State University.  The first job I took out of college was a Kindergarten position and I very quickly fell in love with the grade level. Kindergarten really is THE BEST! This will be my first year teaching at Copper Creek, however I also attended Copper Creek as a student.  I am excited to start my 9th year teaching Kindergarten as a "Copper Creek comeback kid". 

I love teaching Kindergarten and I am very passionate about allowing kids to learn and experience the joy that learning can bring. Watching how much a Kindergarten mind can learn is incredible. I am also an apple certified teacher and believe that technology is an amazing tool! I look forward to communicating with you throughout your child’s Kindergarten experience.  Parent-teacher communication is extremely important to me and my goal is to create a wonderful family-Teacher team for our students. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at any time.  Thank you for being such a huge part of this Kindergarten year!
