Welcome to Mrs. Cliff's preschool page!
I have been teaching in the Amphitheater School District for 17 years. I am a born and raised Tucsonian. I went to Harelson, Cross and CDO so I have a lot of Amphi pride. I attended U of A were I received my bachelors in Special Education and Rehabilitation. I became a Lumberjack (NAU) and received my masters degree in Early Childhood Education.
When I'm not in the classroom you will find me at the baseball field with my two boys, Cooper and Carter, and my husband Brandon.
I actually never wanted to become a teacher. I wanted to be a pediatric nurse. I relized I did not like Anatomy and Physiology and thought all the latin words were just silly. I started working as a teaching assistant when I was 19 at Rillito, a school for children with severe and multiple disabilites. I then quickly realized how much a enjoyed working with children, expecially children with speacial needs. I changed my whole path of education and have loved every minute of it.
I can't wait to learn and grow with you all year long.
