Welcome to Preschool! My name is Natalie Tegtmeyer and I am excited to be your child's teacher this year. I live in Chandler, Arizona with my husband, Dan. We have three adult children, Tanner (and our daughter-in-law, Amanda), Taylor and (our soon to be son-in-law Wil) Riley and one sweet granddaughter, Emery. We love to spend time with all of them! I am looking forward to a great year. We will have fun learning and growing together in Preschool with your child and your family.
My Education and Professional Background
I graduated from the University of Northern Iowa with a bachelors degree in Elementary Education and an endorsement in Early Childhood Education. I earned my Masters degree in Elementary Curriculum and Instruction from Northern Arizona University. I have been teaching in the Chandler Unified School District for 30 years; the first 28 years teaching kindergarten and the last two years teaching preschool.
My Educational Philosophy
It is my goal to foster a love of learning in my students and to encourage them to always do and be their very best. It is important to me to create a safe, nurturing and accepting environment where all children feel valued, respected, and willing to take risks. I look forward to being partners in your child's education.
