A little about Mrs. Bove;-) 

e to the Middle Years Program at Estrella Mountain Elementary School!  We are entering our third year of being authorized to offer the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program.  This is my nineteenth year of teaching in the Liberty School District.  I currently hold the positions of sixth grade teacher for ELA, science and design as well as the International Baccalaureate Coordinator.  I am also the Cross Country Coach for Estrella and will be recruiting sixth graders in December;-)

I am married, my husband Bruce is also a teacher and is beginning his 30th year in the Avondale School District.  We have two sons, Kyle just started his first year of High School and Nathan is in fourth grade.

I graduated from Arizona State University with a Bachelor's degree, and have a Master's degree from Northern Arizona University.  I am also Nationally Board certified in Literacy.  


I love the outdoors! I live in the Estrella Foothills between Phoenix International Raceway and the Estrella Mountain Regional Park.  My husband and I hike everyday in our front yard, which is the Estrella Mountain Regional Park. I am also a runner, I have run 12 
half marathons and more 5K's then I can count.  

 I am looking forward to teaching English Language Arts and Science/Design to your child and having a great year!
