Clear the List – Maria Sanchez Rizo

I am going to be a first year 2nd grade teacher at Conley Elementary School for the 2021-2022 school year. Ecstatic doesn’t even cover how am feeling to start teaching. I have known that I wanted to teach since I was in Mrs. Jorgensen’s kindergarten class singing “Baby Beluga”. After high school, I went straight into working for schools my tutoring and then substitute teaching. I have never once regretted my decision to be a teacher. After my first day of substitute teaching, I knew I was meant for this career. I am excitedly planning my wedding for October as well as planning my first year teaching. Finances are a little tight with so much going on right now. Having my Amazon Wishlist cleared would be a blessing. I could never be more thankful to start off the school year with a room full of supplies and myself full of drive and gratefulness.
