Ms. Paz


Welcome to the Paz-Spofford Community wonderful Trios (Third Graders)!

I am Ms. Paz and I co- teach with Ms. Spofford. 

We do a lot of oral language and hands on activities in our flexible seating classroom.

I am from Hawaii but have lived in Minnesota for quite a while. I still have family in Hawaii. I do not get to visit them as much as before but I do get to talk on the phone with them daily. 

One of my passions in life is to travel.It is always fun incorporating my educational experiences both internationally and domestically during writer's workshop and social studies. Science and Technology will always be areas I extend my learning in as I have a facination and passion in both.

During my spare time I enjoy watching my son play baseball or listening to him play the saxophone.  I also enjoy spending a lot of time outdoors and near water. I love kayaking and surfing. As a family we enjoy going to sporting events, music and art festivals, and exploring the great outdoors. We are often at the park or at the pet store getting items for our pets.

I am excited to meet each one of you as we continue buiding and strengthening our community for the 2021-2022 school year!
