Hi, I’m Analiese; the kids like to call me Ms. A. I am the director here at Amore Preschool. Working with children has been a passion of mine since I was young! Molding and shaping the minds of our little ones is so exciting; from watching them take their first step, to their first word, then teaching them how to read. The entire early education process is truly amazing to me! We are so thrilled to be apart of that process with each and every child that walks through our door. When envisioning what my dream of a learning environment for children looked liked, I picture a place where children could come for education and love. We want all our children to feel special. Not only do we take pride in making sure they receive the best care but we also enjoy exciting projects and educating them in a fun way!
Education has been such a key factor to my success in life! I graduated high school in the Midwest. I started my college education in Indianapolis then later transferred to the University of Arizona to study early education; as well as nutrition. I was able to have the amazing opportunity to study abroad in England. During my time there, I enjoyed the culture and made many lifelong friends. Culture is a huge part of my life! I am German/American. I grew up speaking German. Later my family lived in a Spanish speaking country which influenced my desire and later decision to become a director at a dual language preschool.
In my free time, I enjoy time with my school aged kids. We love cooking together and exploring new places outdoors.
With a background in education and experience working with children from infant and up, for the past 13+ years, it is without a doubt something that I love doing each and every day! I always say you have to reach their heart before their mind! When you do, they give back in love more then you will ever imagine!
I would definitely say I consider myself very ambitious! I’m always continuing to better myself and everything I do! I am privileged to work with an amazing team of educated and passionate teachers that feel the same.
Hi, I am Brittany!
I grew up in Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho and recently moved to Arizona for college and quickly fell in love with it here.
I have loved being around kids for as long as I can remember. I first started working with kids just babysitting for family friends. I have known I wanted to work with kids for a long time but became more interested in teaching as a career a few years ago. I am currently attending college at Grand Canyon University and working towards getting my degree in Elementary Education.
On the weekends or in my free time I enjoy being outdoors and I love to go camping! I love to be active and outdoors surrounded by the people I love!
Hi there! My name is Ariana, however I typically go by Ari.
Working in early childhood education is my passion! I have been working alongside little ones (ages 0-5) for the last 10 years. I love every day in the classroom! My favorite part of working with children is seeing the world through their eyes, as well as getting to facilitate their discovery of the world. I find so much importance in hitting developmental milestones with the children. I also love creating and maintaining close relationships with parents. It means the world to me! I believe the school a child goes to should be that families “village”, so to speak.
I have two boys of my own. I love to watch them grow and develop too! I have been here in Arizona for three years, but I am originally from a small town in Florida. In my time outside of the classroom you can catch me snuggling with my kiddos, cooking/trying out new adventurous recipes, shopping, or enjoying an iced coffee!
I look forward to spending time with your kids, as well as getting to know each and every parent behind the sweet little faces that make up our school family!
Hello everyone! My name is Mar’Shaie. The kids just call me Ms. Shai (Shay). I am from Los Angeles where I graduated from Los Angeles Southwest College with an associates in Liberal Studies: Teaching Preparation. I did dual enrollment in high school so I graduated high school and community college the same year.
I currently attend Arizona State University. I am majoring in Psychology with a minor in Early Childhood Education. Being a teacher is an ideal career because working with children is the most rewarding job! I love it. So far I have learned so much throughout my experience and am amazed at what they can do each and everyday. I just want to participate in helping children reach their full potential and develop the best way that they can.
