Hello, my name is Brandi Lander and I am very excited to be working with your child at Riggs Elementary Community Preschool. I graduated from Northern Arizona University with a Bachelor’s in Elementary Education and an endorsement in Early Childhood Education. I plan on continuing my education in Early Childhood Development and Special Education.
I was born in Southern California. I lived there for 23 years until my husband was transferred to Arizona. We have lived in Arizona since 1996. We moved to Chandler 3 years ago from Tucson. In Tucson, I taught preschool ages 3-4 for three years. I have been married for 21 wonderful years. I have 2 children, Daniel 15 and Haylie 10 and a 2 year old chocolate lab named Duke. In my free time, I like to travel with my family and I love reading.
This year, my goal is for us to work as a community to achieve the success of each child’s learning and prepare them for their continued education. The children’s success and enthusiasm for learning is what I enjoy the most about teaching. It is such a joy for me as a teacher, to watch the children enjoying their experience in preschool.
