Meet the Teacher

Hello Families! My name is Mrs. Welsh, and I am THRILLED to be your first grade teacher! I absolutely LOVE children and teaching. This is going to be a fun year full of learning and new adventures. I can't wait to learn about you, and here is some information about me.

I was born and raised in San Diego, CA. I graduated and received my teaching credential from San Diego State University in 2002. Having a huge and very close family, my husband and I made the really difficult decision to move to Arizona in 2006. I immediately found my new home and school family teaching first grade here at Moon Mountain, an AMAZING school, and I've loved every minute of it! This is my 16th year teaching first grade.

My husband and I now have three amazing boys, ages 11, 10, and 3. We keep ourselves busy with trips to the library, soccer games and family movie nights! You might even hear me share about our hiking and camping trips--so many beautiful spots in AZ!!

Teaching is the BEST JOB in the world. As your teacher, I believe in providing a safe and caring environment where students are willing to take risks and achieve more. I will challenge you daily with learning that is engaging and purposeful, and we’ll have some fun during the journey as well! This is going to be a wonderful time of learning, and I look forward to partnering with you, your parents and families, to make this your best school year yet!
