Meet our Early Childhood Teachers
Kristi earned a bachelor’s degree from Sonoma State in Business Administration. After starting her own family she left the business sector for education. She worked as a paraeducator with special education students for a number of years. Kristi is a former preschool parent who loved her time so much as a parent at Laurelwood Preschool and jumped at the chance to join our staff in 2014. She enjoys nurturing a love of learning in her students, and encouraging them to be all they can be.
Bonnie graduated from Santa Clara University in 1995 with a Bachelors of Science in Political Science. After working in corporate law for over fifteen years she decided to pursue a career change – raising her two little girls, Sophie and Emilia. Sharing in her youngest daughter’s experience at Laurelwood Preschool convinced her that her true passion was working with children so she eagerly accepted the opportunity to join our talented group of teachers. She is currently pursuing her education in Early Childhood Development. Her goal is to promote self-esteem and to instill a love of learning in her students. She hopes to provide them with a nurturing atmosphere where they are encouraged to be creative and to express themselves so they will thrive now and in the future.
