Hello Sierra Verde!
My name is Aimee Luttinen and I am so proud to be a new member of the Sierra Verde Viper family! I will be working in the Special Education Department as the new LC teacher! This will be my 12th year in education as twelve years ago I started my educational journey as a para professional! I am from the beautiful state of Washington and have been in Arizona since 2000. I graduated from Grand Canyon University in 2017 with my Bachelors in Elementary and Special Education. From there- I went to Arizona State University and graduated in 2020 with my Masters in Special Education with an emphasis in Applied Behavior Analysis- Go Sun Devils! Not only am I excited to be at Sierra Verde, but my daughter, Mikaela, is starting at Sierra Verde in Kindergarten this year! My boyfriend, Andrew, Mikaela, and I love to go traveling to different places, and our favorite place to go is Disneyland! We have one dog, Nola, and one cat, Luna, in our home! A little fun fact about me: Before I got into education, I worked as a professional chef! I absolutely love cooking and baking! I am so excited for the 2022-2023 school year and to get to know my Sierra Verde family- fellow teachers and staff, students, and families! It's going to be an amazing year!
