Briargate Preschool teacher Amanda Gasco knows District 20 well. As a Colorado Springs native, she spent her entire K-12 school years in D20. It’s no surprise she would return to our district after graduating from Colorado State University with Bacherlor’s and Master’s degrees in Early Childhood Education. In the summer of 2017, Amanda was honored as D20’s Preschool Educator of the Year.
Allison Cortez, D20 Director for Communication, sat down with Amanda to talk about what she loves about preschool, what her students are learning and why nap time is a thing of the past!
