Mrs. Santana Storey
Welcome to 1st Grade!
My name is Santana Storey. I have been teaching at Gil Sanchez Elementary for 10 years. I am from Taos, New Mexico. I graduated from New Mexico Highlands University with a BA in Elementary Education and from Grand Canyon University with a masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in Reading. I have been married for 10 years and I have a 7 year old son and a 4 year old daughter.
I enjoy teaching first grade because first graders learn many new things, from becoming readers to developing friendship skills that will last a lifetime. Students have opportunities to learn one-on-one, in pairs, in small cooperative groups, and as a whole class. We work hard on creating a warm, respectful classroom environment in which students feel safe to work alongside their peers.
