Welcome Back Wildflower Families,

My name is Elissa Fenton.  I am so excited to have the opportunity to be your child’s teacher this school year.  I have lots of fun and interesting learning planned for us, and I am eager to get started.  I look forward to getting to know my students and their families this year as we work together in an education partnership to help your child grow to be the best student they can be.

To begin this education partnership, I will introduce myself.  I have been privileged to call teaching my profession for many years.  This job has led me to three different states: North Dakota, Florida, and finally here, to Arizona.  I have also been lucky enough to work with many different age groups ranging from second graders to fifth graders.  I love teaching fifth grade and look forward to working with your child this year.

I believe that education is a powerful way to shape the future.  I am committed to my own learning and have a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Elementary Education.  I recently went back to school again to work towards a Doctorate degree in the area of Curriculum and Instruction.  I would like to share this passion for learning and discovering with my students.

Communication between the home and school is an important part of your child’s year.  I encourage you to email me at efenton@avondale.k12.az.us or call me at (623) 772-5200 with any questions.  I am always happy to hear from my students’ parents.

Looking forward to a great year,

Elissa Fenton
