Kindergarten 2018-2019


Who Are We?

Tona Greco (Pronounced like Donna, but with a T)

I have been teaching at New Vision since the doors opened in August of 2006.  I feel so incredibly blessed to work in this school with amazing families, fantastic teachers, and the best administration you could ask for!  I love being the first contact a student has with formal education.  I get to help build a solid foundation for our youngest learners and instill a love of learning that lasts for years to come.  My philosophy of teaching kindergarten is to first let them know they are in a safe and loving environment.  Your student will hear me say over and over, “There are no mistakes in kindergarten, only learning chances!”  I am a Mama Bear when it comes to these tiny humans.  They are my kids and I will love and care for them above all else that happens in our classroom!

Who am I when I am not teaching? I hold an M.Ed from Regis University and wrote my thesis on "Phonetic Awareness in Emergent Readers." I have been married for 19 years and have a daughter here at New Vision.  I am an avid road cyclist and enjoy riding centuries (100 mile rides).  I love to cook, travel, read, attend church, and support our local Colorado Eagles hockey team with season tickets.  You might just see me at a game and if you do, come say hi!

I grew up in Northeast Iowa with a beautiful family who I am very close to and very proud of.   I received my college education from Normandale Community College and Northwestern College in St. Paul, Minnesota.  I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education with an emphasis in Kindergarten.  After graduating, I took my first teaching job in a suburb of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  I taught Kindergarten in a private school there for three years (Some of the best years of my life). Kindergarten is a true love of my life.  My philosophy of education is that all children are special and all of them can learn.  Learning is a gift and it should be a fun and exciting experience for our students. They should feel loved and be loved most of all!

My husband, David and I have been married 17 years and have three beautiful children.  I home schooled all three of our children for six years before we came to New Vision.  My two oldest are in High School and one attends New Vision Charter School and we have loved it here.  Outside of teaching, I love to spend time with my family, at church, travel, read, paint, and take pictures.  This is my fifth year teaching at New Vision and I am excited about another wonderful year with your little ones.
