About Teacher Talia
Talia has combined her life experiences along with her degree in education to turn her vision of opening a preschool into a reality.
Talia loves the excitement that children bring to preschool as they explore new ideas and learn to express themselves. She provides a nurturing environment where each child can develop their social/emotional skills, learn how to be a good friend, and be Kindergarten ready.
Preschool is a magical time and Talia is fortunate to work with kids and their families as they discover and grow.
About Teacher Zoe – Music
Zoe (aka Zazzy Zoe) has been teaching music to kids of various ages since 2002. Her music-teaching career kicked off with teaching hand drumming classes to groups of teenage girls at a residential treatment center, which ignited her passion for music facilitation. From 2005 to 2008, Zoe worked at a preschool where she was the in-house musician. Although the students were a lot smaller than teenagers, their enthusiasm and appreciation for music was not. These days Zoe travels around to a number Portland area preschools bringing her love of music into classrooms, and she is thrilled to be a part of the Beaumont Preschool community. During a typical music session, kids participate by playing/using their voices, bodies, rhythm sticks, shaker eggs, percussion instruments, bells, gathering and small hand drums, play scarves, a parachute, and whatever other cool objects Zoe happens to get her hands on.
