My name is Andrea Hastings and I am the developmental preschool teacher. I have 20 years of experience in special education and the majority of those years I spent specializing in teaching students with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Teaching is my passion and I love to watch my students grow and blossom. Each day I have the opportunity to teach my students through play, music, and hands-on activities. Preschoolers possess enthusiasm, energy, and creativity that is contagious which fills my days with joy.
When I am not at school, I spend time traveling, cooking, and swimming with my family. I was born and raised in Minnesota and am still acclimating to living in the south. Being a northerner, I love to play hockey, fish, and play in the snow. I really do miss the snow but not the -40 below.
