Hello wonderful third graders and families! My name is Ms. Cagnetta and I am ecstatic to be your third grade teacher this year! I have great expectations for this year and look forward to many wonderful learning opportunities that we will experience together.
I am a Leopard at heart due to attending Kindergarten through 6th grade at Legend Springs. My 1st grade teacher is who inspired me to want to become a teacher. I am honored to be back and a part of this community of excellence at Legend Spring. I earned my Bachelor’s in Elementary Education from The University of Arizona in 2018. This is my sixth year teaching third grade and second year at Legend Springs. I currently hold a Structured English Immersion (SEI) Endorsement and a Gifted Endorsement. I absolutely love learning and cannot wait to grow and learn with you this school year!
When I am not teaching or planning awesome things for us to do at school, I enjoy country dancing, traveling, outdoor adventures, and spending time with my family and friends. I love students who have enthusiasm, humor and excitement to learn because it makes teaching so much fun. I am looking forward to getting to know all of you this year.
My philosophy of education is that all children are unique and must have a stimulating environment where they can grow physically, mentally, emotionally and socially. It is my goal to create a challenging yet nurturing environment where students feel safe, supported and encouraged to express themselves as well as embrace the differences of others. I hope to encourage critical thinking, collaboration, and creativity on a daily basis. I will encourage students to take charge of their learning and feel proud of their accomplishments. Most importantly, I am looking forward to a remarkable year!
