Mrs. Squires' Pre K

Welcome to Pre K!

I am so excited to welcome you to Westside Elementary and to our Pre K program. This is going to be an amazing year! I look forward to getting to know your family!

I am originally from Cordele, GA and moved to Valdosta to attend Valdosta State University. I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Special Education and Early Childhood Education.

This is my second year at Westside Elementary and my fourth year teaching Pre K! Teaching Pre K is truly my dream job and I love everything about it!

I have also taught severe/profound special education.

I am married to Michael Squires, who is a local realtor. We have a little boy who will be 2 years old this December, and are expecting a baby girl in late October!

Movie: Despicable Me

Food: Chicken Salad Chick/Texas Roadhouse / Taco Bell

Drink: Mountain Dew/Iced White Mocha from Starbucks

Candy: Sweet Tarts

Animal: Giraffe
