Mrs. Tina Conway
Hi Families, welcome to 5th grade! I am excited to be back at Las Brisas as a Language Arts and Social Studies teacher and I am looking forward to getting to know all of your children this year.
Education and Career: I received my BA in Elementary Education from Arizona Sate University and this will be my 14th year of teaching. My teaching experience began in the Paradise Valley School District, with two years being in Kindergarten, eight years in First Grade, and one year in Pre-Kindergarten. This will be my 3rd year at Las Brisas in 5th grade. I love everything about reading, watching students find their love of reading with the intoduction of new books and teaching the whole reading process.
About Me: I have lived in Arizona all of my life, I know that's pretty rare. :) My husband and I celebrated 15 years of marriage just this year, and we have two children also in the Deer Valley District--Jackson (12) going into 7th grade, and Charlotte (7) going into 2nd grade. We have a full fur family of two dogs, (Spade and Wallace) a cat, (Cody- he will be 18 years old this year!!) a fish, and my daughter just added 2 guinea pigs (Penelope and Daisy) into our family. I love coffee/tea, Diet Coke, traveling to new places, going to the beach, or up north to the pines whenever possible to escape the heat, reading, hiking and spending time with my family.
