A little about Mrs. Bove;-) 

e to the Middle Years Program at Estrella Mountain Elementary School!  We are entering our fifth year of being authorized to offer the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program.  This is my twenty second year of teaching in the Liberty School District.  I currently hold the positions of sixth grade teacher for Language & Literature, as well as the International Baccalaureate Coordinator for the Middle Years Program.  I am also the Cross Country Coach for the middle school and will be recruiting sixth graders in December;-)

I am married, my husband Bruce, just recently retired after 30 years of teaching. We have two sons, Kyle who attends Estrella Foothills as a Senior and Nathan is in seventh grade.

I graduated from Arizona State University with a Bachelor's degree, and have a Master's degree from Northern Arizona University.  I am also Nationally Board certified in Literacy.  


I love the outdoors! I live in the Estrella Foothills between Phoenix International Raceway and the Estrella Mountain Regional Park.  My husband and I hike everyday in our front yard. I am also a runner, I have run 12 
half marathons and more 5K's than I can count.  

 I am looking forward to teaching Language & Literature to your child and having a great year!
