• Welcome to 2nd Grade!

  • My name is Mrs. Amber Wolfe. This is my third year teaching second grade at Centerra Mirage STEM Academy.  Prior to that I was a preschool teacher at CMSA for four years.  My husband and I have three boys who have all attended school in the Avondale Elementary School District.

    I'm excited to be your child's teacher this year and watch them grow academically and socially throughout the year.  Please reach out to me if you have any questions or concerns.

    I look forward to meet you all soon!
