About me

My name is Graciela Graham.  This will be my 12th year in education.  I'm happily married to my wonderful husband of 8 years, James.  We have 3 amazing kids.  Eliana will be 5 this month and will start kindergarten herself, Ephraim who goes by "Remy" is 3 and our youngest is Emma, 19 months.

I'm so excited to have the awesome opportunity to teach at Archway Chandler.  I have heard wonderful things about the school and I am so excited to now be part of the Archway family.  I look forward to working with you to better prepare my students to be successful and exemplary citizens.  

This blog is set up to be able to communicate with you and give you any classroom updates.  Other means of communication will include phone calls, parent teacher meetings, and emails. This blog will answer questions about homework, school events, field trips, and anything in between. I will be updating every Monday morning so please stay connected.

I look forward to getting to know you. I am also a Kindergarten parent and that will allow me to be there right with you in the ups and downs of this school year. My desire is to see my students thrive socially, academically, and personally.
