Welcome to First grade!
Dear Parents and Students,
Welcome to the first grade at Peralta Trail Elementary School. My name is Miss Shackelford, and this will be my first year at Peralta Trail Elemntary School. I recently graduated from Northern Arizona University with my Bachelors in Elementary & Special Education. While living in Flagstaff, AZ, I taught at Cromer Elementary for a year and a half in grades first - third. I also spent a semester working in the life skills class at Coconino High School. I was fortunate enough to complete my educational training in Vilseck, Germany through the Department of Defense within a fourth grade class and a K-1st grade Resource class.
Now for a few notes about me. I was born and raised in Mesa, AZ and absolutely love the beautiful desert that we live in! The greatest part of being a teacher, for me. is that I learn just as much from my students, as I hope they learn from me. I am able to teach studets academic and life skills to help them be successful in both the school setting and within the community.
I am so thrilled to start the 2019-2020 school year with your child! Throughout the coming year, we will have an exciting time learning and graowing in all academic areas. We will make this year one of the best years of their school career. I can't wait to meet you all!
