Hi, my name is Sonja Dobson and I teach 2nd grade. This is my 13th year teaching for FUSD. I grew up in Michigan where I attended Henry Ford College for Nursing with a degree in Science. I always wanted to live in the desert climate so after visiting Arizona I moved here. In Arizona, I worked for hospice, spent 9 years working as a court clerk for the Chandler Municipal Court and 2 years with the Chandler Prosecutor’s Office. I graduated from Ottawa University in Phoenix with a BA in Elementary Education, Master’s in School Guidance Counselor with an endorsement in Gifted Education. Teaching has always been my passion. I am a believer that all children can learn when inspired and imagination is ignited. I love engaging students with hands-on activities, real-life learning, and I’m here to meet your child’s individual learning needs, as they grow and reach their fullest learning potential.
Hi! My name is Sheila Cluff. I received my Bachelor's of Science degree in Elementary Education from Arizona State University. I have taught Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grades in FUSD for the past 15 years. I love watching children grow and learn. I am a wife, mother of 5 and a grandmother of 14! I am proud to be a teacher at Skyline Ranch K-8. Great things are happening here! Go Bulldogs!
I am Karen Ross. I have been teaching for 32 years within the Chandler School District. I am a retired teacher and decided I was just not ready for retirement. I decided to change up everything and came to Skyline Ranch to become a Bulldog! I graduated from NAU with both my Bachelors of Science degree in Early Childhood Education and I have a Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction. I have taught kindergarten, first and second grade self-contained along with multi age k-2 and combo 1-2 classes. I love to see kids strive to learn and the out comes at the end of the year after they have met their goals. I am married, a mother of 6 and a grandmother of 8. I am so excited to be a part of Skyline Ranch and look forward to the upcoming year.
My name is Kym Richardson and I am so excited to become a Bulldog this year at Skyline Ranch. I received my B.S. in Elementary Education from the University of Missouri, Columbia. I received my Masters’ Degree from Northern Arizona University in 2007 with an emphasis in Multicultural Education (2009). I also have Endorsements in Reading and Structured English Immersion with Certifications in Early Childhood and Gifted Education. I am a retiree from the Higley Unified School District and am so excited to be teaching in the Florence District where I recently moved. Most of my experience is in 3rd and 4th grade, but I love teaching 2nd graders! I recently became a grandma for the 4th time and am enjoying every moment of it.
