Hi! My name is Nayomi Waid and I am very excited to be your child's teacher this year! This is my third year teaching Kindergarten. I have been in the field of Early Childhood for 15 years. I spent 9 of those years as a preschool teacher, and 5 as an Early Childhood Coach/Trainer. I have a Bachelor's degree in Education with a minor in Child Development from Ashford University and a Master's Degree in Adult Education and Training from the University of Phoenix.
I have been in Arizona for 13 years now, but I am orginially from Ventura County, California - Go Dodgers! I also have roots close to Seattle Washington - Go Hawks! I have been married for 20 years and have 3 boys, 18, 15, and 10. I love the beach, music, and chocolate.
I can't wait to see your children grow and develop over the next year. I believe strongly in the value of building relationships with the children and their families - after all, it takes a village! I appreciate your support at home with what we are learning here. Kindergarten is an exciting time and when you support their learning at home, it enriches their experiences. Please feel free to email or call me anytime with any questions that you might have.
It's going to be a great year!
