Teacher Feature

Ms. Maria, PK 3

Teacher Feature: Ms. Maria

At the beginning of each school year we ask the faculty and staff to fill out a fun questionnaire about themselves. Each week we choose someone to feature, and we share their questionnaire so that everyone can learn more about our awesome MSPCS faculty. We are featuring two staff members this week, Ms. Maria who teaches our PreK 3 students. Learn more about her here.
