Welcome to Preschool



    Parents & Students! 

    Welcome!!! My name is Mrs. Alexis R. Scott, Early Childhood Special Education Preschool Teacher at The Early Learning Center in the Apache Junction Unified School District.  I am a loving, outgoing person! I enjoy quading and being outdoors on the weekends spent with family, my husband, son, and my three dogs Vinci, Chevy, and Kona. I have a Dual Bachelors Degree of Science in Elementary Education and Special Education through Northern Arizona University. I have an Early Childhood Endorsement and a Masters Degree in Early Childhood Education through Northern Arizona University, "Go Lumberjacks!".  I am a Highly Qualified Teacher. My primary goal in the classroom is to help students achieve their academic goals in child development and growth. As an educator, I find instituting clear communication and establishing trust and partnerships with families is essential to promote students’ success in their educational environment and developmental growth. My philosophy in education is to motivate and encourage each unique student and support them in early development and active exploration. My classroom consists of choices, positive behavior, visual aids, classroom routines, play, language, and active, safe learning, which will all promote student’s academic success!
