2 & 3 Year Old Teacher -Raccoon Room
Miss P

My name is Pam, I began my teaching career in 2013, and I've loved every minute of it.  I see everyday as a learning adventure.  I love to cultivate curiosity and creativity.  I enjoy teaching children the tools they need to make friendships, gain self-control, and to solve problems on their own.  I believe with patience, love, and a lot of fun, a child's potential has amazing possibilities.

I live in Poway with my two delightful girls.  You'll likely find me out and about with my family, hiking local trails with our dogs or playing at a park.

Miss Melanie

Hello, my name is Melanie and I'm mother of 3 kids who keep my husband and I very busy.  We live in Mira Mesa and have a dog named Marley.  I have worked as a childcare provider since 2000, and even had an in-home preschool from 2005-2008.  I believe my knowledge and love for children can help each student grow academically and have fun all at the same time. 

When I'm not teaching, you will find me spending time with my family, kids sports (cheer & lacrosse), shopping, volunteering at my local church, or my helping at my kids' schools.

Miss Nichole

Hi, my name is Nichole and I'm married with two amazing children living in Poway. I have worked as a childcare professional since 1996 and I have a background in early childhood education. I feel my knowledge and experience bring valuable insight to the classroom and my love and passion for young children make me an asset to our team. I understand the importance of providing a nurturing, supportive, fun, and enriching environment to prepare our children for entering Kindergarten. I feel there is nothing more gratifying than watching a young child learn and flourish and I truly feel blessed to have the opportunity each day to help my students cultivate a lifelong love for learning, a sense of self-worth, and a strong foundation for literacy and success throughout school.
Miss Jen

Hi!  My name is Jen and I've taught in San Diego County since 1995.  I received a Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education in 1994 and a Master of Science in Education in 2001.  I began my teaching career working in a private school in Rancho Santa Fe, worked for the Carlsbad Unified School District, then taught for a charter school for several years.  I enjoyed working with preschool children the most so I opened Elm Park Preschool in 2010 to continue doing what I love best- enriching the lives of preschool children.  I've lived in Poway since 2007 and I am the proud mom of two boys who attend school in Poway.

I think the preschool years are unique and precious.  These important years lay the foundation for learning throughout a child's entire school career.  I believe in making learning fun and exciting; I also recognize the importance of Kindergarten readiness.  I feel it is our job to provide opportunities for our children to grow academically, socially, and spiritually.
