My name is Vicki Paris. I have a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and a minor in Early Childhood Education. I have been teaching for 26 years and have been teaching kindergarten at Espree for 14 years. My kindergarten classroom is full of learning, adventure and incredible growth. I believe kindergarten is a magical time for children and I hope I can share this memorable year with you and your child.
In my time away from Espree, I love traveling, scrapbooking and reading. I also spend a great deal of time outside of work preparing crafts and activities for my students.
My name is Stephanie Thompson and this will be my second school year at Espree Learning Center. I was born and raised in Colorado, moved away and now I am back. I graduated from Ohio University with a Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education. I have taught previously in Ohio, Philadelphia, and Denver in a preschool through third grade setting. I always knew from a young age that I would be a teacher and found that Pre-Kindergarten is my favorite age to teach. I love to incorporate early reading and writing throughout the years’ lessons. My goal with every student is to create lifelong learners as they progress through the program. Outside of school I love to cook and spend time with family and friends. I also enjoy traveling and heading to the mountains to hike.
