Stephanie Gessford

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!
