BA in Elementary Education MA in Educational Leadership
My name is Antonella Nechtman. I am orginially from Illinois. My family and I moved out to Arizona in 1986. My parents and two brothers, along with their families, all live in the Valley as well. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Education in 1998 and my Masters in Educational Leadership in 2001. I began teaching in Cave Creek in August 1998. My first two years, I taught Spanish to K-5 students and then I spent twelve years teaching 5th grade. I then was out of the classroom for three years to work part time as a school psychologist's assistant, still in Cave Creek, while raising my youngest son. In 2016, I came back to teaching 4th grade.
My husband, Marc, and I have two boys; Lorenzo-13 and Eli-8. Lorenzo attends Sonoran Trails and Eli is at Black Mountain. Most of my spare time is spent at sporting events with my boys. In the rare occasion I get some time to myself, I like to shop or spend time with my family and friends.
I am looking forward to a great year engaging my students, partnering with parents, and growing as a teacher!
