Mrs. Amanda Arevalo
Hello! My name is Mrs. Arevalo (Uh-rev-uh-low) and I am so excited for my fifth year at Discovery Elementary. I can't wait to get to know you and your family this year. :)
A classroom is no longer just a physical place, it's a feeling you have with those learning around you, near or far. Regardless of the changes we may be facing this school year, I am prepared to take them on with flexibility and a positive attitude. I am ready to work with you to make sure your student continues to learn and grow, but I can't do it alone. This year more than ever I want to be on your team-- let's work together to put your student first and come up with a system for success. It may be a little bumpy at first while we both make adjustments, but we can do this. A phrase I use with my students every year is, "Second graders never give up!" Neither does their teacher. Neither does their family.
2nd grade is the best grade EVER! This is the year we become fluent readers, tackle three-digit addition and subtraction, learn about traditions around the world, and become plant and animal experts. We solve problems, make mistakes, celebrate our learning, and get smarter every day!
I grew up in Meridian and went to school in the West Ada District. I got my Bachelor of Science degree in Education from Walla Walla University, which is where I met my husband, Moses. We have two fur babies-- a little Bichon named Winston and a Goldendoodle named Leo. When I'm not at school I enjoy eating Mexican food, playing with my dogs, doing anything artsy or creative, or participating in [Netflix] marathons.
