Hello everyone! My name is Carmen Bolyard. This is my 13th year of teaching. I graduated from Arizona State University with a graduate degree in Gifted and Talented Education as well as an undergrad in Elementary education.
My husband and I have been married for a little over four years. We moved from the state of Virginia two years ago, place where I lived for twenty years. Previous to Virginia, I lived in Guatemala, place where I was born and raised.
My husband and I have a little girl named Ellie. She is our sunshine! She turns one on August 28th, 2020. She loves to read books, eat carbs, and smile.
I believe that everyone has the ability to grow as learners. My classroom will provide choice, respect, love, kindness, and an environment in which everyone can feel safe. You and I will make 5th grade the best year of our lives!
I look forward to meeting all of you!
