Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! I am Mrs. Flores and I am so thrilled to be here at Desert Sage! This year kicks off my fourth year in teaching. It is my second year in third grade. Prior to third, I taught second grade as part of the Mandarin program for two years. Third grade is such a fun age to work with.
I have two wonderful sons: Blake, who is starting 10th grade, and Cole, who is starting 5th grade. We also added a new fur baby to our family in December, an adorable and silly kitten named Luna. I am originally from Southern California and have lived in Phoenix since 2013. The thing I miss the most is the mild weather, but people assure me that (someday) I will get used to the heat. I still love watching my teams from home: The Los Angeles Kings and Anaheim Angels. In my spare time, I like to be active or read. I love running and hiking, especially when it's with my kids.
I am excited to work with your child this year. I am hopeful that we will have a great year, even if it is starting off differently than we had imagined.
