My name is Ann Switzer and welcome to 5th grade. I have taught at Thomas Edison Elementary School since 1988. During this time I have taught 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 5th grades. I attended Azusa Pacific University where I received my Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts in Education. I have been married since 1988 and I have 3 wonderful children, Christian, Tommy, and Elizabeth. I am looking forward to a fantastic year with your child. Please contact me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or concerns.
As a professional educator, my main objective is to give my students the skills to reason and successfully solve challenges that present themselves in both academics and life in general. To accomplish this task, I teach with the purpose of developing independent learners. As my students continue to move up in their education, more and more is required of them. My responsibility is to guide them in finding solutions to their problems and to develop questioning techniques that will help in probelm solving. My hope is to encourage, support and educate tomorrow's leaders.
