Welcome to 3rd Grade, Room 309!
My name is Susi Webb, and I am so happy to be your child's first grade teacher! This is my fifth year at Desert Sun Academy, however, this will be my 28th year of teaching. I taught 23 years as a first grade teacher and as a Reading Recovery Reading Specialist in Indiana before relocating to Arizona. I have had extensive training in Balanced Literacy through Purdue University and training in the Reading and Writing Project through Columbia University. I have graduate hours through Purdue, Ball State, and Indiana/Purdue Fort Wayne.
My goal in teaching is to create a positive structured learning environment in which students love coming back each day to see what else they can learn. I love watching my students become independent. self-extending, life-long learners.
