Mrs. Kaitlyn Gifford
This year in fifth grade, students will have the chance to learn so many new and interesting things. I am excited to be focusing on math and science this year. In math, we study a lot of fractions, decimals, and geometry. In science, we get to learn all about space, chemical reactions, physical reactions, and engineering.
My name is Kaitlyn Gifford and this is my 6th year teaching. I taught for 3 years in Scottsdale Unified School District and then this is my 3rd year at Canyon Rim Elementary. All 6 years I have been teaching 5th grade. I am born and raised in Scottsdale, Arizona. I went down to Tucson for college and graduated from the University of Arizona in 2011. I met my husband at the U of A, and we both continue to be major Wildcat Fans! I spend my time tutoring, coaching, and spending time with my family or friends.
