My name is Pei-i (pronounced payee) Whittier. I am very excited to be here for my fifth year at Cooley Early Childhood Development Center. This is my fifth year of teaching, but I was a substitute teacher for 7 years and taught at a Chinese School prior to that. I was born and raised in Taiwan where I learned about Chinese culture and the unique resources that Taiwan has to offer.

We lived in Michigan for 12 years and moved to Arizona 6 years ago due to a work relocation. We are used to the heat now and are in love with Arizona. My 21-year-old son is a Senior at Brigham Young University and 19-year-old son is serving mission for our church in Taipei, Taiwan ( where I am from ). My husband works in IT for SRP. Our family enjoy traveling, camping, playing board games and sampling delicious dishes.

I look forward to meeting each one of my students and families. I know that we will have a wonderful year and I encourage you to reach out to me with any questions you may have.
