Kindergarten Prep Room: #333


     The Kindergarten Prep Preschool program in Gilbert Public Schools serves students the year prior to their kindergarten school year. Educational programming is provided by a highly qualified teacher with the support of a highly qualified paraprofessional. 

     Two, 3 hour class sessions are provided Monday through Friday, each having a typical maximum ratio of 1/10.   Daily instruction is presented through thematic units based on the Arizona Early Learning Standards. Teacher observation assessments are performed at the beginning and end of the school year. Progress is reported to the parents twice a year, through a progress report. 

A little information about myself........
     I have been teaching for over 40 years and have been at Houston since 2007. My educational certification in elementary education and certificates in special education, ELL and early childhood education has allowed me to teach preschool special education, kindergarten, first grade, special education K-5 and now Kindergarten Prep.
     After living in four states, my husband, Bob, and I decided to make Arizona our home and have lived in here for over 30 years, raising our two sons in the Tempe school system. I am so happy that both of our sons and their families have made the Valley their home, which allows us to be active in our 6 grandchildren's lives. When I am not teaching or with family, I enjoy drinking white ice tea (no sweetener!) from Starbucks, watching Hallmark movies and University of Michigan football games, baking, reading, music and doing various crafts.
