Mrs. Irene Ko

  • Hello!  Thanks for coming to our classroom website!

    My name is Irene Ko and this is my 1st year in the Deer Valley School District and 3rd year in teaching Second Grade. I am so proud to be a second grade teacher at Mountain Shadows. I love 2nd grade!  I am originally from South Korea. I moved to New York in 2007, lived there for about 11 years. It was New York where I had started my teaching career. I graduated from Queens College with my Master's Degree in Childhood Education. I had taught 2nd grade at State Street Public School in Queens, New York. I moved to Arizona for my husband's new job position. I married my husband, Mark Ko, in Korea in 2004. I live in Glendale, with my husband and my darling children!  John came in to our lives on April 16, 2005. My husband and I were blessed once again on June 11th, 2007, when we met our incredible daughter, Joanne. 

    I truly enjoy teaching. Every subject is my favorite subject to teach! You will love to be in Mrs. Ko's class this year since you are going to learn hard and see yourself growing everyday!
