Ms. Kelly Zimmer
My name is Ms. (Kelly) Zimmer and I am a teacher in the Puente De Hózhó program. I teach 6th, 7th grade Math AND 6th, 7th, 8th grade English. I absolutely love working with Middle Schoolers because of their energy, humor, and kindness. This is my first-year teaching at Sinagua, previously at Flagstaff Junior Academy; and I am very excited for what is to come! Teaching is my passion and I want to guide my students to a love of education.
I want to let you know a little bit about myself. I got a degree in Secondary Education with an emphasis in English and Linguistics from Northern Arizona University. This is my fifth year living in Flagstaff, Arizona and originally from Tempe, Arizona. My hobbies include reading, photography, watching RomComs, hiking, rescuing animals, and spending time with my family (which includes the love of my life, Kyle; my dog, Scarlett; and my two cats, Curve and Angel. I am always out and about in Flagstaff so if you see me, give me a wave!
