Dear Parents,Maggie Abeta

My name is Maggie Abeyta and I am excited to be joining the Mountain School family as the new fifth grade teacher! I had the pleasure of working at Mountain School for 11 weeks in the spring as a long-term substitute for first grade. I fell in love with the diverse, challenging, hands on learning environment Mountain School provides for the students, as well as the welcoming, supportive community of parents. I am looking forward to this year with your fifth grade student.

I grew up in Phoenix, Arizona, then attended Northern Arizona University, from which I received a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work.  I worked in the urban core of Phoenix as a substitute teacher for over a year. I got married and moved back to Flagstaff in the summer of 2015. Since then, I have been substituting in the Flagstaff Unified School District. I have had the unique opportunity to be in and out of a lot of classrooms over the past two years and have learned so much from those experiences.  I have a passion for teaching and learning and am excited to continue my teaching journey at Mountain School!

I believe that students need three things to be successful in the classroom:

  1. A safe environment for your children to thrive in the classroom, so they feel comfortable taking risks, learning from their mistakes, and becoming the best students and people they can be.
  2. High expectations for students both behaviorally and academically. I understand fifth grade is a bridge to the next level of education and I want your student to be prepared to meet the challenges and expectations of middle school.
  3. Parents as partners. I understand that Mountain School is a successful learning environment because parents and teachers act as a team. I ask you to be a partner with me, and I welcome any and all information about the growth and development of your child.  I know that together, we can make this the best year for your child.

Looking forward to a great year,

Maggie Abeyta
