Degrees and Certifications:

Miss Quilente

I am an Arizona Native and grew up in the Peoria area. I received my Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education from Northern Arizona University. GO JACKS! Just like my students, I am continuing to further my education towards my Masters. This is my second year at Highland Lakes and I am absolutely loving it! This year I am looking forward to teaching 8th grade math and continuing to work with many of the same students as last year. I hope to pass along my passion for math to my students and to show them that math isn't all about calculations but also about building problem solvers and proving to yourself that YOU CAN DO IT! With hard work and perserverance I know my students will become successful life long learners. 

Growing up in Arizona I have learned to love the heat. In my spare time I love to go four wheeling with my family and explore new places. On my weekends and breaks when I am not traveling you can find me at a local thrift shop or art gallery.
