About the Teacher

Welcome! I'm Ms. Boone and I am one of the 5th grade English Language Arts and Social Studies teachers here at the Desert Sky campus. This is my first year as a teacher and I am extremely excited that I get the chance to work in a brand new school and experience all of the wonderful things that the Academy of Math and Science has to offer. Even though this is my first year teaching elementary school, I have worked in the corporate world since I was 18 performing employee training, technical writing, administrative assistance, and human resource support, so I am extremely well-versed in teaching others. Additionally, I have a Bachelor's and Master's in English from Arizona State University with a Master's thesis that focused on building reading and writing skills in primary school children. Being a teacher has always been a dream of mine, but I do feel that my time in the corporate world was beneficial to me prior to becoming a teacher because it has allowed me to bring real-world applications into the classroom.
