My name is Stephanie Gessford. I am the lead teacher and licensing director. This is my fourth year of teaching at Learning Tree Cooperative Preschool. I am a Midland native who moved back from Texas in 2017. I have experience teaching 3’s/young 4’s, prekindergarten, kindergarten, and middle school. I have two children of my own; Logan and Anna are both in middle school. My husband, Matt, works for Corteva.
I believe that we are a family in my classroom. I strive to create an environment where children learn to appreciate one another as much as they value learning. I am a firm believer in solving problems through exploration, collaboration, and inquiry. You will find us singing, dancing, getting messy, building, and exploring in addition to working on writing, numeracy, and pre-reading skills.
Thank you for sharing your children with me this school year. We are going to learn a tremendous amount, and I promise we will have fun in the process!
