About Ms. Luis
It is my pleasure to extend a warm and heartfelt welcome to you and your child as we begin the 2018-2019 new school year together at the Arizona Autism Charter School. I would like to take the opportunity to introduce myself as the proud Social Studies Teacher. My name is Goldsherdine Luis. As an educator, it is my belief that all students are capable of success, no exceptions. My goal is to ensure your child/children attends to his/her classes on a daily basis and is ready to learn in an environment which is dedicated to academics. I will encourage your child/children every day and together we will set goals, celebrate accomplishments, and also let them know that they are very special and valued in the AZACS community.
As I begin my second year of teaching at AZACS, I would like to share that I have worked in the field of special education for about 8 years. I started out working with adults in a community home whom had a wide variety of multiple disabilities for 3 years and decided that there are children who can also benefit from my love and passion in making a child’s dream come through. With my passion, I went back to school to obtain my Bachelors in Early Childhood Education and my Masters in Education with a concentration in Curriculum and Instruction. I later went on to start working in the elementary public school with children from grades Kindergarten to 3rd grade for 3 years. Wanting to excel more, and work with a different group of children, I worked as a Youth Coordinator with teenagers who suffered with different Mental Health disabilities.
While advocating and bringing awareness to not just the children whom I love and worked with, that awareness was also brought to the community from the children wanting to educate and reduce the stigma of their disability. While wanting to work with a specific group of children, I was welcomed into the AZACS family to work alongside children with Autism in grades 5th to 8th. With the extension of the 9th grade, I will be working alongside the children in that grade level as well. Being grateful for the opportunity to work at AZACS, I decided to continue working on a second Masters in Special Education. Please feel free to ask me any questions about my experience in the field.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at GLuis@autismcharter.org or call (602)883-7500. I am really looking forward to our collaboration and success for the new school year!
Thank you for choosing Arizona Autism Charter School!
