"Whether it rains or it shines, I will treat you like you're mine!!" :)

Welcome to fifth grade! My name is Reshma Patel and I am thrilled to be your child's teacher! I started my teaching career in New Jersey and then settled in Arizona. When I restarted my career after staying at home for while, I joined DVUSD as a Subsitute teacher. This is my fifth year in DVUSD and fourth as a teacher . In this next chapter of life, I look forward to being a part of the community here at New River!

As a teacher, I believe our children need as much exposure to real-life situations as possible. So I try to bring in life whenever I can into my classrooms. This picture reflects just that! It is from a New Jersey newspaper article when I was offered my request from the Department of Homeland Security. They came to my school so that all of our students could witness how someone goes through the process of becoming a U.S.Citizen! I am a proud teacher who takes pride in her students. My own child teaches me lessons every day that helps me be a better teacher for your child every day  :)

Here in Arizona, I love going outside whether it's Watson Lake or Meteor Crater or Anthem Park! I love our State.

My door is always open! Especially, during this interesting Learning journey that we are all going through. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at and I will do my very best to answer your questions right away.
