Mrs. McElroy

Hello! My name is Mrs. McElroy. I am very excited to be a part of the Centerra Mirage STEM Academy and your child’s teacher this year. This will be my 12th year teaching, but first year in the Avondale School District.  I taught for the last 11 years in Phoenix and within those years I taught Kindergarten for eight years and first grade for three years.

I was born in Indiana and moved to Arizona in 2005. I graduated from Purdue University with a B.A. in Elementary Education.  I currently hold an Arizona Teaching Certification with the following endorsements: Reading Specialist, SEI, and Early Childhood.  I have been married for 10 years and I am the mother of two girls ages 8 and 5.When I am not teaching I enjoy watching movies and sports, playing softball, coaching sports, and spending time with my family.

I love watching children learn and grow throughout the year. I'm looking forward to a fun and productive year of learning with your child! You can contact me if you have questions or concerns about your child. I am available by phone, email and notes. Also, I can meet after school  by appointment if you would like to discuss your child. Welcome to Kindergarten!
