3rd Grade

Ms. Marschall:

My name is Beth Marschall. I have worked for FUSD for the past 12 years. Eleven of those years have been at Skyline Ranch. I have a total of 26 years experience in teaching grades K-6. I am a graduate of Northern Arizona University. I have been married to my best friend, Steve Marschall, for 21 years. We have 5 children and 7 grandchildren. We have 2 sons in the Army, and  a son-in-law in the Marines. We are proud of their choice to serve our country! I believe every child has the ability to learn and be successful. It is a privilege to teach your children.

Ms. Winkler:

My name is Linda Winkler, and I am honored to be at Skyline Ranch K-8.  This will be my 9th year teaching in the classroom.  I was a pioneering member at Circle Cross Ranch when it opened its doors, have taught in both district schools and charter schools, and happy to be at Skyline teaching 3rd grade this year.  It is with pride that my first group of students just graduated this past Spring. I’ve been married to my husband for almost 30 years, have a son, Sean, who graduated from the University of Arizona in May, 2016, and a daughter, Micayla, who is starting her senior year at Arizona State University.  When not in school, I enjoy spending time with my family and volunteering as a puppy raiser for Canine Companions for Independence, a non-profit organization which provides fully trained service animals to people with disabilities.  My family is currently raising our 5th puppy for CCI.

Ms. Cayen:

My name is Tiera Cayen. I graduated from California State University San Marcos. This is my third year teaching. I am excited to start my new journey at Skyline Ranch. I have two young boys and a wonderful husband of six years. Family is everything to me, and I spend all my extra time with them. We love to travel and play at the park. I look forward to an amazing year!

Ms. Dowd:

My name is Brenda Dowd and this is my third year at Skyline Ranch. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Marketing and I am in the process of completing the final courses required for a degree in Elementary Education. My husband and I have been married for 24 wonderful years and we have three terrific children together. Through my husband’s job, we have lived and traveled to many different areas of the word: The Middle East and Europe. We enjoy skiing and are advanced open-water divers. I have been an artist all my life, even doing professional caricatures at Opryland USA in Nashville, Tn., in my youth. I am excited and honored to be teaching your students this year.
