Hi! My name is Maureen Cervantes and I am thrilled to begin a new journey here as a third grade teacher at West Wing School. My husband and I relocated to Arizona from New Jersey and we are raising our three daughters in this wonderful community. My oldest daughter is also a West Wing Mustang!
I graduated with my Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education from West Chester University of Pennsylvania. Recently, I completed my Masters Degree in Reading in Elementary Education. During my nine years as an educator, I have enjoyed teaching first, second, and third grade students. In addition, I am a certified Thinking Maps trainer and hold a Structured English Immersion Endorsement, K-12.
My educational philosophy is a student centered, hands on approach to learning. I will provide your child with many opportunities to explore, investigate, and problem solve using critical thinking. Daily small group instruction ensures my students receive personalized learning that focuses on their individual needs.
As I begin my tenth year of teaching, I look forward to an exciting year in third grade getting to know my new students. I value building relationships with my students and their families to promote the love of reading and the joys of lifetime learning. Please feel free to contact me as we partner together in your child's education.
