3's & 4's class Teacher
My 1st year in a Co-operative school was in Lake Stevens with my own child. I loved the play-based aspect of learning and loved watching my son excel. We found not only a great preschool, but a family of soon to be lifelong friends. When my son started in elementary school, a teacher position opened, and also a new chapter in my life. I started taking Early Childhood Education classes online and at night, and eventually earned both my Initial and Short Teaching Certificate’s. I am currently on track to receive my Associates Degree in the coming year. I have found that my many years of teaching and coaching young children has made this career choice my favorite!
As Parent Educator's, Kirsten, Ricci and Angelica provide support for families. They share their knowledge and experience and teach parenting techniques during the monthly parent meetings in addition to in-the-moment tips during class time. They are also available for one-on-one discussions during class time or by appointment at different times and are excellent resources for individual parenting concerns, at-home (or school) behavior problems, or any questions that come up with raising little people that depend entirely on their adults.
