Hi my name is Maria Van Adrighem. I have been a teacher for 28 years and love it. I have a teaching certificate in Early Childhood Education. I have a Master Degree in Education with a Gifted Endorsement from Utah State University. I have lived in Utah my whole life and love the four seasons we enjoy here. Our class motto is to always TRY your best. It is okay to make mistakes. It is a great way to learn. I believe in a child centered classroom. Where they can learn from exploration and manipulatives. I set high expectations for my students and help them to achieve them.
