5th Grade Magnet Teacher Skye Tooley » Bio


My name is Skye Tooley! My pronouns are they/them. I diligently push to create a safe space and brave space for my students. We work on being uncomfortable, challenged, and communicating. We work to understand our identity, bias, and privilege.


I am constantly learning, reading, growing, and practicing. I identify as trans nonbinary. I use the pronouns they/them to identify and go by Mx. T with my learners and Skye with my friends. I am not afraid to try something new, fail, and try again. I know mistakes are okay as do my students. I love all things geeky (comic books, Marvel, Star Wars), I am avid book reader, I love running, bouldering, hiking, and I enjoy traveling. I, also, have a cute dog and cat. 


We work towards being okay with our mistakes. and having a growth mindset. Our classroom focuses on using research based projects that incorporate the arts. In this way, we learn about current events, social justice, identity and how to collaborate and grow together as a community.  


Together we are learning and growing!
