Ms. Kacie Sloan, an FJA 3rd/4th Grade Teacher, is a Nominee for the Coconino County Rookie Teacher of the Year Award! Ms. Kacie is a wonderful teacher who has brought so much joy and light to our school in her short time with us. Whether it's lending a thoughtful ear, taking time to help a student who isn't in her class, or sharing more than her load on projects, Ms. Kacie does it with a kind heart and bright smile. We are fortunate and thankful to have her as part of our team of caring and talented educators. Congratulations, Ms. Kacie!
