Our goals for the children are to promote a love of school and learning. We will be learning many things in school through the art of play; child centered learning. The children may not realize that they are learning things like numbers, colors, shapes, socialization, beginning literacy skills and other pre-academic skills. They will be playing games and enjoying teacher organized and child directed activities. This is in accordance with the Amanecer Preschool program, where children acquire knowledge about the physical and social worlds in which they live through playful interaction with objects and people and are motivated by their own desire to make sense of their environment.
Hello! I am an Early Childhood Special Educator for the Developmental Preschool in GPS. Special education preschool is my passion! This will be my seventh year in the district with this age group. My first year teaching, I taught SPICE preschool, and Social Structured Preschool. My second year however, I moved to the Developmental Preschool, fell in love and decided to make it my home.
I have been married for almost five years to my amazing husband who is a junior high English teacher in Mesa. We have a beautiful 2 year old daughter, Briella, who is learning new words every day. She is the light of my life! We also have a wonderfully behaved lab/german shepherd mix, Sadie, who protects the entire family. On my free time, I love to play with my daughter, cook, shop, and do crafty things around my house.
