About Mrs. Ayana Gilchrist...
Hello Kinder families,
I can't express to you how happy and excited I am to be here at Conley. Kindergarten has always been my favorite grade to teach. This is going to be a great year and I am excited to work with you all. Please always feel welcome and feel free to contact me whenever you need.
My Education and Professional Background
I earned my Undergraduate degree in Early Childhood Education and a Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from ASU. I began teaching in Los Angeles, California. I taught in both a public school and a Montessori school. I moved back to Arizona and began teaching in a Kindergarten classroom, went on to Special Education Preschool, then a general education preschool, on to third grade and now back to kindergarten when it all began over 20 years ago.
My Educational Philosophy
Everyone has the ability to learn. Never let anyone limit you. Education has always been a passion of mine. I believe that with the right motivation learning can always be a fun experience.
