Mrs. Jeanine Blanchard
My name is Jeanine Blanchard and this is the sixth year I will be serving the Esperanza Elementary School's community as a Response to Intervention Specialist. Previously, I was a 6th grade teacher at Sunrise and a mentor teacher as well as a 5th grade teacher at Village Meadows. I am so excited to be a part of the Esperanza team! We truly are a "community" of positive learners and I love our motto...#teamhope.
As an adult learner and single parent, I went back to school to earn my bachelor's degree in elementary education. Since then, I have taught in both the Glendale Elementary School District and the Deer Valley Unified School District. Fourteen years ago, I completed graduate school and earned my master's degree in Educational Administration and Supervision at ASU West.
I truly believe learning is a life-long endeavor and I learn something new each and every day from my wonderful students! As a teacher, I hope to instill in all my students that their success in school and in life will be determined by their motivation, effort and a belief in themselves. If my students develop that "growth mindset," there will be nothing they cannot achieve!
