Hello, my name is Erica Pepe., lead teacher of the Shepherds class. I've been a Preschool teacher for over 16 years and I have enjoyed every moment of it. Being your child's first teacher is an experience that is important to the child and family as well. I look forward to being a part of Hanford Christian Preschool's family. I am also continuing my education and learning all that I can so our child can get the best teaching possible here at Hanford Christian.
This is my seventh year working in the preschool program at Hanford Christian. Prior to being in the classroom, I spent 10 years working in a school cafeteria, serving lunch to 450 students or more. I have also been involved in Children's ministry for 15 years. I have earned my Associate Degree and continue to be open to education by taking college courses and attending Professional Development training. I am a member of the California CE registry a program designed to track and promote the education, training, and experience of the early care and education workforce for the purpose of improving professionalism and workforce quality to positively impact children. I look forward to sharing my love of learning and God with our preschool friends this year.
I am excited to be a teacher here at Hanford Christian Preschool. My love of teaching started at an early age. My mom worked in early childhood education and has been one of my biggest mentors. I taught my first official preschool class while I was in high school. I knew immediately that teaching was my calling. I have spent the majority of my adult life teaching or directing at preschools all around California. I did take a 10-year break to raise my own children ages 23 to 7 years old. I have been happily married for 26 years. I am looking forward to an amazing year of learning and growing with your child. Thank you for trusting Hanford Christian Preschool staff with your precious little ones.

I have been in the field of Early Childhood Education for 32 years, and I am excited to be able to contribute and help out in the super caring and nurturing environment that is this Hanford Christian School. I believe wholeheartedly in applying the very best of developmentally appropriate practices in the classroom, as well as teaching with the understanding that young children learn best through consistent hands-on experience. I am thoroughly enjoying getting to know our students and families and being a small part of our students' early learning process. Here's to a great school year.
