Ms. Washburn

My name is Alexandra Washburn and it will be my 4th year in education. New River definitely has a special place in my heart and look forward to working with this amazing group of staff and students in the 2018-2019 school year. I love every minute of being a Special Education teacher as well as teaching the intervention program, Read 180. I graduated in 2015 with a dual major in Elementary and Special Education from Northern Arizona University (LUMBERJACK FOR LIFE!). I truly love teaching upper elementary and middle school students. These kids literally have the best sense of humor, they are so smart and just plain fun to be around. I am looking forward to a great year full of memories!

Some of my favorite things include:

Food: Avocados all day everyday!

School Supply: Flair Pens

Drink: Iced Coffee

Book/Movie: All things Harry Potter (just like Mrs. Stivers!). 

Sport: Football (huge Cardinals and Bronco Fan!)

TV Show: Once Upon a Time, The Voice

I am beyond excited to have the opportunity to get to know your child and participate in his/her learning experience. I believe teamwork is important and hope to work together with you to ensure your child's success! If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at (623) 376-3540 or
