Mrs. Andi Thornton

Hello Preschool Parents,   

My name is Andi Thornton.  I will be your child's Developmental Preschool teacher.  I have 26 years experience in special education.   I have a Masters Degree with an emphasis in Educational Counseling and spent 8 of my 26 years as a School Counselor. I have three children, so in my "free time" I enjoy spending time with my family.  We spend the majority of our time outside hiking, biking and camping.  We also love family game night.  I grew up on a Farm, so I have a lot of pets.  We have two dogs and three cats.  We also have two classroom fish.  

My number one concern is communication. The best way to contact me for a quick response is email.  If you have an emergency or need to pick up your child early, please call the front office number.  My phone doesn't ring into my room when class is in session. I have many wonderful professionals that work in the classroom.  Mrs. Diana and Mrs. Gabbie are my paras, Mrs. Ronda Horton is our OT, Mrs. Laura Waller is our Speech Therapist and Ms. Erin Harper is our PT.  You can reach them via email if you have specific OT, PT or Speech questions.   

If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me.  I look forward to working with you and your child this year. You are your child's first teacher, so together, we have an important job to do.  


Mrs. Andi
