Meet the Teacher: Ebright would like Queen Creek Elementary to become model for other schools

JuliAnne Ebright

Name: JuliAnne Ebright

School: Queen Creek Elementary

Why you chose to work in the district: Queen Creek is a fast-growing district that treats the students like a family. Although the district is large in size there is a small-town feel that makes you feel welcome.

What I like most about what I do: I love to watch the students grow. Getting to know each student is the best part of the job. There are so many wonderful things I get to learn from my students.

Where did you come from: I was born in upstate New York but have lived in the east Valley most of my life.

If I had picked a different occupation it might have been:  If I did not choose education my next career choice would have been engineering. I love to figure out how things work together.

What I’m looking forward to most this school year: This school year I am looking forward to a new family group of students. I want to incorporate new STEM activities with the students.

My vision for the school: My vision for the school is that Queen Creek Elementary would continue to grow in both academics and having great character leadership abilities. I would love to see Queen Creek Elementary become a model for other schools nearby.

People who inspired me (and how): In my career, my sixth-grade teacher Mr. Moss inspired me. He was the type of teacher who I desired to be. He knew his students for more than lessons and standards but knew them personally.

One thing I want students to know about me:
I want students to know that they are cared for long after they leave the classroom doors. I want students to know that I want the best for them and I will help them reach their goals anyway that I can.

One thing I want parents to know about me: I want parents to know that I have high expectations for my students but I will always offer support to help them reach those goals. I love their children like they are my own and I want to see the best for them.

My advice to today’s youth:
My advice to the youth today is to remember that nothing happens without hard work. Anything is possible with enough hard work and determination.
