Hi My name is Stephanie Smalley and welcome to our classroom! I earned a Bachlors of Arts in Communication from the University of Arizona in 2013. I have studied famiy communication, interpersonal communcation, relational communcation, mass communcation, communcation and conflict management, mass communcation and children, argumentation, debate and research methods. I acheived my degree becuase I had a fear of public speaking, even asking a question in public. I understand the importance of communcation and the role it plays with our students and their families. I also have an Associates of Art and a Teacher Certification from Pima Community and an Associates of Arts in Early Education from Diablo Valley College in Pleasant Hill, Califronia. For many years I worked as an infant caregiver using the Reggio Emilia Approach. I use the Reggio Emilia Approach to this day in my teaching, which values the child as strong, capable and resilient; rich with wonder and knowledge. Every student I have taught has been an honor to teach. If your a current parent of one of our students, you can reach us on ClassDojo.
