Dear Parents,

Hello, my name is  Dr. Colleen Lara and this is my 19th year in education.  I have two children and two grandchildren.

I love school and hope to instill this love with my students.  Together we will do great things!

Our district uses standardized testing such as:  Dibels, AZ Merit, and Galileo to identify students who will benefit from extra instruction.  Therefore, these students will meet with me in small group setting.  This program is designed to help strengthen students' reading abilities.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns at 480-982-1110, ext. 6210 and by email at clara@goaj.org.

Thank you,


Dr. Colleen Lara
