Mrs. Angela Toms
Welcome to Kindergarten! I am so excited to work with you and your child as they start their academic career here at Canyon Springs STEM Academy.
My name is Angela Toms. I was born and raised here in Phoenix, Arizona. I graduated from Arizona State University in December 2011 Magna Cum Laude with my Bachelors in Elementary and Special Education. I live in Black Canyon City with my husband, our son Kaden and our two dogs Gunner and Herkimer. We all enjoy camping, fishing and having barbeques with our family. I love to cook and read when there is any extra time.
My first 3 years of teaching I worked as a Teacher for Students with Special Needs at Anthem School. I then found my home when I transferred to Canyon Springs. I worked for 3 years as a Teacher of Students with Special Needs working with Kindergarten through Second grade. I spent one year in Kindergarten before I took a years leave of absence to spend with our new baby.
I am very excited to rejoin the wonderful Kindergarten team for my 8th year teaching. Whether it be online or in person my goal is to create an environment in which all students feel comfortable and safe. I hope to instill positivity, responsibility, respect, choices and consequences as we make this kindergarten year a fun and successful one.
Each child’s success in school is dependent upon many factors, however, the most important factors are the student, the parents, and the teacher working together to provide the most supportive program of education.
Thank you so much for trusting me with your most precious gift and I look forward to working with you and your student.
