Mrs. Noria Gharibyar

Hello, my name is Noria Gharibyar and I am very excited to be a part of Padilla Elementary.I have two young children named Nadia and Sarah, ages 14 and 11 and one cat named Foxy. My philosophy of teaching is that students who are engaged in the learning process motivate them to practice higher-level critical thinking skills and promote better learning experiences. This is my 4th year in education in the 27J School District. I taught 4th grade for 1 year in- person and 1 year online and 5th grade online at Turnberry Elementary School. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education from Metropolitan State University. Currently, I am working on my master’s degree in special education from Regis University. I am looking forward to a great year!
