Director and 2′s/3′s Teacher
Monica first came to Campbell Parents Participation Preschool in 1990 as a participating parent. Campbell Parents’ Participation Preschool gave her a great opportunity to be a part of her children’s first school experience. She so strongly believes in the parent participation philosophy that her two boys, both graduates of CPPP, went on to a parent participation elementary school. Monica now brings over 20 years experience working and teaching at parent participation schools.
I believe in a child-centered philosophy, which allows children to learn through play and by exploring the environment at their own developmental pace.
In addition, Monica was a Preschool Teacher for three years and a Director for one and half years for children ages 2 to 5. Monica received a Bachelor of Arts degree from California State University, Chico, and has her Adult Education teaching credential in Parent Education.
Julie comes to CPPP with over 15 years of experience working with children in play-based programs. She has an AA degree in Liberal Arts from De Anza College, over 40 units in Early Childhood Education and will have completed her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Human Development, with an option in Child Development in June of 2013.
Julie was a participating parent at Cupertino Co-op in 1999 and strongly believes that a child’s development is strengthened through a close bond between families and school. Parents and teachers partner together so that we as a team offer a safe, nurturing, learning experience.
Each Child should be recognized as an individual and each child’s development is unique. My job as a teacher is to help foster kindness, respect for others and independence through a fun, enriching learning environment.
