Welcome to third grade at Estrella Foothills Global Academy! At Estrella Foothills, we will be focusing on helping our students become not only good citizens, but global citizens. With a strong emphasis on social and emotional learning, I will empower my students to have a global mindset by providing them with the tools to view and interact with the world as a whole. Building upon our cultural intelligence, my students and I will embrace the tools that we have to communicate with and study different cultures throughout the world. We will be real-time problem solvers as we identify needs within our local, and global communities and work together to take action in solving them! By the time my third graders leave me, they will have a strong sense of self and the skills to compassionately communicate and collaborate with people around the world.
