Welcome to 5th grade! My name is Mrs. Larson and I teach science and writing. I am looking forward to another great year and taking on the challenge of starting the year in a whole new way.
In 1999, I graduated from NAU with my bachelor's degree in elementary education. I started my career in the Washington Elementary School District teaching second, third, and fourth grade. In 2005, I moved to the Deer Valley School District and taught fourth and fifth grade at West Wing. In 2018 I made the move to Sonoran Foothills and have been teaching 5th grade science for the last two years. Four years ago I took on teaching 5th grade science and fell in love! Science is my passion, and I try to instill my passion of science into my students.
My husband of 25 years and I have two children. Our daughter is a nursing student at NAU, and our son is a senior in high school. We love spending time together as a family when everyone is actually home :)
This year will be a new adventure for all of us. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you need anything!
