Mrs. Erica Borunda
Hello and welcome to first grade! 14 years ago I student taught in this very building and I'm so honored to be here as a Knoles teacher and also the parent of a second grader!
I graduated from NAU in 2004 and for some crazy reason moved back to Phoenix. There I met my husband and had two sons. We were excited to move back to Flagstaff in 2016.
I started my career in South Phoenix teaching kindergarten through third grade. I then became a reading specialist and instructional coach in grades kindergarten through fifth, and even wored with middle schoolers! I'm looking forward to being back in first grade and spending my days with the people that bring me the most joy!
We have a big year ahead of us and I can't wait to embark on this journey with you. I value children's learning styles and recognize that every student learns differently. My job is to make sure every student is able to learn at his or her level and feels safe and welcome in our classroom community. I look forward to getting to know my students and their families. I invite you to visit our classroom, call me when you need me, or send me an email. I thank you for trusting me with your most prized possession daily!
Here's to a great year!
