Hello, my name is Debra Fischer, I have been an Early Childhood Educator for over 25 years and this is my 6th year as a Head Start teacher. I enjoy working with young learners, watching them grow and learn. I am excited for them when they learn something new, when they are able to accomplish a new task (such as opening their own milk, cleaning up a mess they made, or when they create a piece of artwork). I love that you, as their parent or guardian, have chosen to trust me with them. I enjoy being silly with the students, learning new things from them, and just having fun. I am looking forward to this new adventure of Home Learning!
Hello, my name is Maribel Hurtado. I have been an Early Childhood Educator in the Deer Valley Head Start program for 20 years. I love fun activities that engage the students in learning through play. Working with preschoolers and watching them grow from the beginning of the school year to the end is my biggest accomplishment!
