Marissa Montero and Angel Saco
My name is Miss Marissa and I will be your teacher for preschool. I am so excited to meet you and learn what makes you special.
I am from California. My husband, our son and I moved to Arizona 4 years ago to be closer to my family. Our son, Manny is 8 years old and attends Desert Willow. I have worked as a substitute for CCUSD district since moving here to Arizona. I have been working with children for over 20 years! How time flies!
We have two dogs named Oscar and Canela “Ela” as well as a bearded dragon named Gus.
This program for 3-5 year olds is specifically designed to provide your child with the solid foundation he or she will need for later learning in kindergarten and beyond. The Core Preschool Sequence is a set of guidelines based on scientific research about how young children learn. This curriculum focuses on identifying specific goals in all areas of learning, setting high expectations for all children. www.coreknowledge.org Dance and Drama are also integrated into the curriculum. Classes are offered 2, 3, or 5 days a week and Kid’s Club before and after-school classes.
At Black Mountain Preschool children are developing motor coordination and skills using objects for a range of physical activities, such as Hula Hoops and large Waffle Blocks.
