|Dear Parents and Community Members, |
Welcome to Coronado Elementary School, home of the Coyotes. My name is Micaela Swan and I am both thrilled and honored to be the new Principal. I received my Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education from Grand Canyon University. From there I began my teaching career at the middle school level in the Pendergast School District. I then continued my teaching career at the primary level in the Creighton School District.
After completing my Masters in Education Administration from Arizona State University, I began my administrative career in the Washington Elementary School District. Through my 13 years in education, I have found that real learning starts with building trust and solid relationships with parents, students, and teachers. This is why I have developed an open door policy. If there are any questions or concerns, my door is always open.
I have quickly learned how amazingly dedicated the administration, teachers and staff are at this school as they have already spent countless hours preparing to greet students at the end of July. Several of our teachers have spent the summer teaching English in China and building relationships to continue to grow the Mandarin Dual Language program. Other staff members have attended workshops and seminars on unique ways to get students engaged in learning to increase test scores in reading and math. This hard work and dedication directly aligns with our mission and vision goals to connect to the world, engaging the future, and inspiring greatness.
I look forward to a wonderful year of learning and growing together.
