Hello! My name is Bobbie Watterson. I am very excited to learn about the Paideia family and community this year. This will be my first year here at Paideia. However this will be my fifth year teaching, I have taught kindergarten and second grade multiple times. I am a 2008 graduate from Arizona State University with a degree in Early Childhood Education. I am the oldest of four children. My brother is married to his high school sweetheart and recently they had a beautiful, bouncing, baby boy. In 2011 my parents adopted my baby brother and baby sister. I have a very close family, whom I share two family businesses with. When I am not in the classroom, I can be found at my families care home in Queen Creek. There, we care for people with brain injuries. Many members of my family, including myself, are also pyro technicians. It is a hobby that I love. I am looking forward to spending a great deal of my time learning, loving, and helping the students, parents, and community here at Paideia.
