Pleasant Elementary students excited about school
About Us » Teachers & Staff

Teachers & Staff

Our administration and staff are remarkable educators. We work together, both formally and informally, to make sure that our students are confident, prepared, and successful each day. We not only teach our students, but we teach and mentor one another. This collaboration is what makes our programs, strategies, and activities work effectively and efficiently.

Everyone has an important role at school. We make sure that when you enter our doors, we greet and assist you quickly. We invite you to visit our school and classrooms often. For our students’ safety, please always check in with office personnel.
