Preschool Director: Dori

Hi! My name is Dori, this is my 4th year as Director at St Peter’s Preschool. 

I started as a parent then, I was an aide for 2.5 years and a teacher for 15. I celebrated 20 years on staff in September 2023. St. Peter’s is a special place to me and I am continually working on creating a safe, loving, nurturing academic environment for the preschoolers of our community and their families.

Preschool Teacher: Bekah

Hi!  My name is Bekah, and St. Peter’s has been home to me for over 20 years now. 

I started right out of high school as a Teacher’s Aide working mostly summers and part time through the bulk of my undergrad years, and then began teaching in 2008. Since then I’ve served at one point or another in every position here at St. Peter’s and have learned so much. I do hold a B.A. in Early Childhood Education, but would now easily concede that the most useful source of my education has been working here with great kids, teachers and families.

Preschool Teacher: Diana

Hello! My name is Diana, I am looking forward to a fun school year. But first let me tell you a little bit about myself.

I was born in El Paso, Texas and we moved to Tijuana Baja California when I was 4 years old and have been living in Tijuana since then. I have 1 sister and 1 brother, both younger. I enjoy traveling and love spending time with my friends and family.

Preschool Teacher: Josey

Hello St. Peter’s! My name is Josey. 

I have been with St. Peter’s Preschool for two almost three years, and I am studying to achieve an associate’s degree in Social Behavioral Sciences. I’ve volunteered in my church’s youth ministry for 7 years, working with kids from 2nd grade all the way up to 8th grade. I love working with the kids and my goal is to further my education so that I can be the best teacher I can be. My favorite things to do as a teacher are crafts, science experiments/projects, music and dance!

We truly have an amazing team!
