2s and 3s

Ms. Debbie and Ms. Leah

Welcome to Chandler PDO 2/3 Class!

We are so excited to spend this year as part of your child's learning community. We wanted to introduce ourselves before we officially meet you at our Open House on Sunday, August 20, from 2-4pm. We hope to see you there! Our first day of school is Tuesday, August 22. If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact Leah at landerson815@gmail.com.

Ms. Debbie

My name is Debbie Holt and this is my fourth year teaching at Chandler Baptist Preschool. I grew up in a suburb east of Cleveland, OH then attended art school in Columbus, OH before moving to Kansas City to work for Hallmark Cards. There I met my husband, Bob. After ten years at Hallmark, I quit to stay home with my two daughters. This fall, Bob and I will become official empty-nesters when our younger daughter begins her first year of college. However, I know your children will help to fill that empty space. I'm very much looking forward to being back in the classroom with your wonderful kids!

Ms. Leah

My name is Leah Anderson and this is my third year teaching at Chandler Baptist Preschool. I grew up in Tulsa, OK and graduated with my Bachelors degree in Elementary Education in 2002. I was a classroom teacher for nine years, a majority of those spent teaching kindergarten, before choosing to stay home with my kiddos. My husband and I have three boys - a five year old starting Kindergarten this year in North Kansas City and two three year olds who will be in Ms. Kelly and Ms. Megan's class. I'm looking forward to this year! It's an honor to be a part of your child's school experience!
