Parents, we encourage you to stay in constant communication with your child's teacher. Successful education does not stop at the end of the school day. Parents need to reinforce what their children learn in the classroom and create an environment in the home that facilitates learning. If you have any questions regarding your child's education, please contact his/her teacher to discuss the situation.

About Leslie Santicola
Having moved from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania with my family in January 2018, I am excited to begin a new chapter at Fountain Hills Unified School District. I have taught for many years in grades ranging from 4th to 12th, in addition to teaching at the collegiate level. I received my Ph.D. in instructional management and leadership from Robert Morris University in 2011, a MS in education from Duquesne University in 2004, and a BS in psychology and business from the University of Pittsburgh in 1995. I enjoy baking, yoga, traveling, and spending time with my husband, Craig, and our two cats. We are having fun exploring Arizona and all that it offers.
