• My name is Annemaria Osborn and I have been working within the Apache Junction Unified School District for a little over 6 years. I started as a paraprofessional within the special education department for 3 years. I decided that I loved it so much so I went back to school and obtained my Masters of Special Education from Grand Canyon University. I took a position as a self-contained teacher at Peralta Trail Elementary and I have been there ever since. For the 2020-2021 school year I will be the teacher for the K-2 Future Readiness Program at Peralta Trail Elementary. I truly enjoy working with the little ones they have so much potential that can be unlocked with the right key! I truly believe that each child has a future in this world regardless of their disability! When a child enters my classroom for the year I treat them as if they were my own and I will go above and beyond to ensure they are engaged in fun and learning! Before a child can actual learn I believe that we need to have a strong community a sense of trust and friendship. Building a relationship with each student and their family is the key to success!
