My name is Joanne Fanucchi-Norton, welcome to the LIFT Preschool program! This is my 7th year teaching at Alta Vista in the preschool special education program.
I grew up in central California, got my undergraduate degree from the University of San Diego, and more recently my teaching credential from CSU Dominguez Hills. A year ago, I finished my master's degree in Special Education.
I have four kids of my own, with two recently graduating from college, and two more to go! I recently got remarried and now together we have six kiddos!
I love working with young children in preschool and believe early intervention is key to their success. In our program, we believe in teaching to the whole child, and believe that children learn best with love and consistent reinforcement.
I love what I do, and really believe in a partnership between our staff and our families is so important!
I look forward to meeting you.
