Clerk - Gabriela Morazan - 10+ years in the child development field. "For many families, preschool is the first experience into the school district. Knowing where to start, who to speak with, and filling out the correct paperwork can make them a bit uneasy. As a preschool secretary I strive to make the introduction to the school system a welcoming and as easy as possible for new and returning families. I enjoy meeting and working with new families, as well as continuing to build a relationship with returning families and making parents feel they are a part of the team in their child's education. It is always a pleasure to see families from our community coming to enroll their children in our preschool sites, and then returning to enroll younger siblings. Some of these families become part of our extended Washington family because we get to see their little ones growth from preschool all the way through fifth grade."
