StephanieStephanie Simmons – Head Teacher, Classroom 3

I have been working at Coastal Community Preschool since November of 2011 and I feel very privileged to work with such a wonderful group of teachers. I have always had a passion for working with children. It is such a reward to see the progression of how a child starts to learn something and then when he/she really grasps the concept.

I have been working with preschool aged children for over 30 years and have an AA in Early Childhood Education from Cabrillo College. I have also been trained in both the SEEDS literacy and Handwriting Without Tears programs which I incorporate in the classroom on a daily basis.

I grew up in Santa Cruz County and married my husband Craig in 2010.

I enjoy walking and spending time at the beach, music, dancing and being with my husband. I have grown to enjoy the San Antonio Spurs, watch football and I married into a family that are huge SF Giants fans, so now I am enjoying getting to know “our team!”

I am very excited to be a part of the Coastal Community Preschool family.
