Meet Our New TK Teacher: Miss Little
Hello Arroyo Vista families! I am so excited to be a part of the AV team as the new Transitional Kindergarten teacher. I have been working at Arroyo Vista for the past couple of years as a substitute teacher, student teacher, and classroom observer, so you may have seen me around. I recently graduated from California State University Los Angeles with my Bachelor's Degree in Child Development and a Multiple Subject Teaching Credential. In addition to working at AV and going to school I spent the last five years working as the lead teacher at Gymboree Play & Music. As a Gymboree teacher I was able to work with many wonderful young children and I can't wait to continue to do so in Transitional Kindergarten. When I am not working I love going to the beach and cooking with my friends. I am looking forward to meeting you all and having a great school year!
