Mrs. Sylvester

I am very excited for another year at Las Brisas!  I have been teaching for 15 years, all with DVUSD. I have taught 4th, 5th, and 2nd grades, as well as multi-age ESL. This is my seventh year focusing on gifted education. I have a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction and endorsements in Structured English Emersion and Gifted Education.
I foster a classroom atmosphere of collaboration, exploration, curiosity, discovery, fun, and challenge. 
On a personal note, I am a multi-generational Arizona native.  My husband, Rob, and I have three wonderful grown children, whom we are extremely proud of.   I love creating art, reading, exploring Arizona, doing yoga, and TEACHING!!!
