Welcome to Kindergarten!
Hi there! My name is Ms. Dempsey and I am a Kindergarten teacher at Knoles Elementary. This is my second year at Knoles and I am so excited to be a part of the Kindergarten team! I moved here for school about 5 years ago from Southern California but Flagstaff has completely stolen my heart. I graduated from Northern Arizona University with a Bachelors degree in Early Childhood Education. Previously, I've worked throughout town at preschools and most recently at Knoles, now I'm really looking forward to Kindergarten!
I recently got engaged to my best friend, Riley, he and I can't wait to continue our journey in this beautiful town. I love hiking with my pup, Hank, or just relaxing in my backyard with a good book. I think one of the most amazing parts about being a kid is the nature of exploration, so I plan to incorporate that in my class! I plan to create a safe classroom environement of respectful and couragous learners, that way we all feel safe to learn and explore.
I look forward to this wonderful school year and meeting every one of you! Please feel free to contact me anytime.
