All About Mrs. Escobar!

My name is Lisa Escobar and I will be your child’s first grade teacher for the 2020-2021 school year.  Although this school year is going to be extremely different than past years, I can assure you that I will do the best I can to keep your child engaged, keep them learning and keep the fun of school alive in whatever capacity we will be in!  We are all in uncharted territory this year, but we are in this together!  First Grade is truly a magical time and I am so excited to work with you and your family!

I attended college in 2002-2006 at South Mountain Community College and Arizona State University. Go Sun Devils! Throughout my four years of college, I spent my practicum hours in all elementary grades K-8, but eventually found my heart during my student teaching hours in the Kyrene School District, teaching in a 1st/2nd multi-age class!  I graduated from ASU in 2006. I have been teaching for 13 years and have spent all of that time in 1st grade at Trailside Point Performing Arts School in Laveen.  This year, I have chosen to transfer to Estrella Foothills Global Academy. I am so excited for this new adventure!

I have been married to my husband for almost 11 years.  I have two children, Joshua (9 years old) and Jocelyn (5 years old).  We also have an almost 1 year old dog named Benny!  I enjoy reading, going to the movies, working out, spending time outdoors and spending time with my family.  My family and I also LOVE going to baseball games!  Go Diamondbacks!
