Preschool Office Manager: Claire Baker
I am so excited to be starting my second year at ACPS!
Last year I started out as a sub while my son was enrolled here, and I loved it so much that I officially joined the staff in January 2017 as a 2’s Assistant.
Last year was so much fun for me and I love working with the kiddos. This year, I am really excited to be up front in the office and have the opportunity to meet and interact with more students and families.
I know this is going to be a great year at the preschool!
