“I opened Caughlin Preschool in 2000. My training includes Reading Recovery, California Early Literacy Learning, and thematic and developmental teaching. I taught first grade for over eight years for Washoe County School District. This has been an ideal background for developing and running a high quality preschool like ours.”
