Meet Mrs. Acord
I am Mrs. Denise Acord, and I have taught preschool at St. Mary's Primary School since 2000. I am from California, but my husband and I have lived in Winona since 1984. We have three daughters who live in the area; one is still at home. I am also a proud Grandma. Zoe is 16, Ian and Sigrid are10, and Nissa is almost 8, and Leo was born in Dec. 2015. I am fortunate to be able to see them often.
Teaching and Learning for Life
In addition to teaching preschool, I have been the lead teacher in a toddler room; worked as a substitute teacher in public, private, and charter schools; taught International Cooking with Children; and taught Pioneer Living through College For Kids.
Preschoolers are among my favorite age-groups because they are so excited about learning, and almost everything can be a learning experience. I enjoy talking with young children, and listening to their ideas.
