Hello Sycamore family! My name is LaKasha Peck and I am so thrilled to be your teacher for the 2021-2022 school year. I can not wait to meet each and every one of you and get to know you as we embark on this school year together. I have lived in Tucson since 1997.
I am proud to have grown up in the Vail School District and be a proud Cienega alumni! I have been married to my amazing husband for nine years. We have two widely wonderful boys that are also a part of the Sycamore family. Outside of school our family really enjoys watching and playing sports, our boys are very active in flag football. We also enjoy BBQing, spending time outside around water, fishing, camping, traveling and spending quality time with our families.
I recently graduated from the University of Arizona with my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education. (Bear Down!) Since graduation I have spent time teaching in the Sahuarita School District before I found my home at Sycamore. I have really enjoyed my experiences with students in kindergarten, first, and second grade. This year, I look forward to working with your students and helping them keep that spark for learning alive! My philosophy on education is that all children learn in different ways. I work very hard at ensuring all of my lessons meet each student’s level of intelligence by being engaging, meaningful, and most importantly, fun! As a classroom family we will build a community that encourages each student to feel comfortable and confident. We will work together to challenge our minds to learn new things every day and reach our goals.
