Meet the Teacher

Hi there! My name is Caitlin Corrigan, and I am a 20-something teacher from Arizona.



I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Arizona State University in December 2012 with a Bachelors in Elementary Education. I began teaching 3rd grade SEI as a long term sub in October 2012 and took over that class as the classroom teacher in January 2013. The following year I began teaching 2nd grade, and have been there ever since! 


I've been with my other half, Matt, for 5 years. He is my other half and best friend. He is a huge support system and can always make me smile and laugh. What more can you ask for? #love



I am a momma to 2 fur babies, who I absolutely adore and who drive Matt insane. According to Matt, I'm a crazy cat lady. As much as I probably don't want to admit it, he's probably right. 


This is Tara, who is just the sweetest little thing. She has the prettiest green eyes, and she knows she's a cutie.


This is Zazzo. He's a little trouble maker, but a huge love bug. He sure loves his love!


I could post the rest hundreds of my cat pictures, but I should probably hold off for right now ;-).


Teaching is my passion, and I couldn't imagine doing anything else with my life. I am always thinking of new ways to engage my students in their learning, and also how I can raise the bar and challenge my students even more. I am always taking classes to learn more about teaching so I can become the best teacher I can be, and one of these days I'll have an endorsement in Gifted Education as well as a Reading Specialist endorsement. 

If I ever have any free time, you can usually find me reading, cooking, working out, or even hiking if it's not too hot here in Arizona. I love to talk teaching and anything education related so I'd love to connect with other educators! Feel free to leave me a comment or send me an email cat picture
