Meet the Teacher

My name is Shanda Bogle and I am very excited to get to know you better! I was raised in Chandler and graduated from Northern Arizona University with a degree in Elementary Education. My emphasis was Early Childhood which focuses on children from birth through age 8. I taught both kindergarten and second grade before starting Preschool on the Farm. 
I love teaching and find early childhood to be the most rewarding age group. For young children, learning something new is a magical experience and I am blessed to be a part of it each day. My favorite part of teaching preschool, besides messy art projects, is watching a child learn to read! There is just something truly special about the transformation when letters become more than shapes on a page.

My name is Heidi Hamblin.  I was raised in Gilbert, Arizona, and have lived in Chandler for the last 21 years with my husband, Brent, and our six children. I’m excited for this next year and look forward to teaching the three year old class at Preschool on the Farm! I am a Licensed Practical Nurse, but found that my first love is early childhood education. I love everything about it!  From the mess to the bright eyes of discovery, I crave it! I have taught preschool since my youngest child, Angie, entered kindergarten. I hope to meet you soon!
