3rd Grade Teacher

My Bio

Hello! My name is Sydnie Nording and I teach 3rd grade at San Tan Charter School. This will be my first full year working at San Tan and I love working here! I was born in Idaho but I have lived in Arizona most of my life. I went to college at ASU and now live in Mesa with my boyfriend Colin and our dog Harvey.

When I am not teaching I love to read any book I come across. I also love to hike with my mom and my dog. The mountains in the area have great trails with breathtaking views. My favorite place to hike is near the superstation mountains.  Quilting is also one of my passions. Every summer the women in my family get together for a quilting retreat where we make a project together.

When I was growing up I never thought of being a teacher. As I grew older I realized my passion for teaching. I love to see that spark of understanding when a child learns. I came to San Tan because we inspire teaching with love and truly focus on each individual child. The relationships with students, parents, and coworkers that I have already made make me love to come to work every day to teach third grade!
