Susan Taebel » Introduction


Dear First Grade Families,


My name is Mrs. Taebel and I am so excited to be a part of the first-grade team at Val Vista Academy this year.  More importantly, I am THRILLED to be your teacher this year!  It’s going to be a fun year of learning and new adventures.  I can’t wait to see what the year has in store for us.  I want to know ALL about you, but first I am going to tell you a few things about me.


I started teaching in 2007.  I have taught grades 1st-3rd in Coolidge, Tucson, Phoenix, Mesa, Tempe and now Gilbert.  Last year I taught first grade.   First grade is one of my favorite grades!


I was born and raised in Illinois.  I'm married to my high school sweetheart.   We have two beautiful daughers.  My oldest is now a sophomore in college and my youngest is going into high school this year. They are both so much fun and keep me on my toes.  We also have a dog named Oskar.


I am so excited to be your new teacher and look forward to a fun and exciting year with each of you! Lets make it a great year!


Mrs. Taebel
