About Ann: I am the lead teacher of the extended day program. This is my eighth year in the extended day program and I am going on my sevneteenth year at St. Mark’s Preschool and Kindergarten.
About Amy: Hi! I’m Amy Obukuro. I moved to Tucson in 2015 from Yokohama, Japan, where I lived for 18 years. My husband is Japanese, and my three children were born there and attended Japanese schools. We are a bilingual family. Before going to Japan, I was a high school German teacher and also studied French. I love travel and learning languages (working on Spanish and Turkish now!). I cook mostly Japanese/Chinese/Korean/Indian/Thai food. I love knitting and spinning— anything to do with yarn! I also love science, bird watching, photography and doodling.
About Amber: I’ve lived here in Tucson my entire life, learning to love the beauty of the desert and trying to survive the awful heat. I’ve always had a passion for working with kids, and I aspire to be a teacher for young kids in the future. My love for art and creativity translate perfectly into the classroom setting. In my free time I enjoy photography, exploring nature and making memories with friends!
