Mrs. Nechtman

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!
