2s and 3s

Ms. Debbie and Ms. Leah

Welcome to Chandler PDO 2/3 Class!

We are 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 19, from 2-4pm. We hope to see you there! Our first day of school is Tuesday, August 21. If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact Leah at landerson815@gmail.com.


We will send another newsletter in the coming week with information concerning a typical day in the 2/3 classroom and more info on what your child will need to bring for a successful day! Be watching for it!

Ms. Debbie

My name is Debbie Holt and this is my fifth year teaching at Chandler Baptist Preschool. I grew up in a suburb east of Cleveland, Ohio, then attended art school in Columbus, Ohio, 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. Fast forward twenty-two years and I now have two daughters in college and my mother-in-law has moved into one of their bedrooms. I believe the Lord is offering me a unique perspective at this time in my life: The ability to view life at each end of the spectrum… the experiences of a young child to that of a woman who has lived a full life. I am very much looking forward to being in the classroom with your children this year and bringing home wonderful stories each day to share with my mother-in-law.

Ms. Leah

My name is Leah Anderson and this is my fourth 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, Tyler, and I have three boys - a first grader in North Kansas City Schools and two four year olds who will be in Ms. Kendra and Ms. Joan's class. I'm looking forward to this year! It's an honor to be a part of your child's school experience!
