Mrs. Polly Wood
Welcome to eighth grade science! I am new to Anthem School this year. I previously taught third grade in the Cartwright School District in Phoenix for 14 years, then I took a 20 year break from teaching to stay home with my two kids. Last school year I taught fourth grade social studies/science in the Avondale Elementary School District.
I was born and raised in Iowa. I got my bachelor's degree in Iowa. I earned my master's degree from NAU.
I have been married for almost 27 years, and I have two kids; Meredith is 26 and Andrew is 20. I love the outdoors! My family and I do a lot of camping and ATV riding. I also enjoy movies, reading, hiking and spending time with my family.
