Greetings! My name is Tanae Morrison and I am the proud Executive Director of Sun Valley Preschool and Sun Valley Charter School K-8. Our mission is to provide our students and families with a premium educational experience through a high quality academic program in a small class size setting. We have a fantastic and dedicated team who are fully committed to seeing students succeed! I am excited to partner with you in preparing students for a life of high achievement.
I received my Bachelor's degree in Special Education from Arizona State University in 2001. I have a Master's degree in School Guidance Counseling which I received in 2008 from Ottawa University. Currently I am finishing my Early Childhood Education Master's degree from Northern Arizona University. I am certified in Special Education, School Guidance Counseling, Elementary Education, Structured English Immersion, and Reading Intervention.
My name is Amy Austin and I am excited to work with all the students at Sun Valley. I am a single mother of two wonderful children. My daughter Phoenix is 7 and my son Elijah is 2. I am originally from Cleveland, Ohio, though I have lived in Arizona for over 24 years. In my free time I love to go camping, hiking, football, baseball, dancing, going to concerts, and spending quality time with my family and friends. This year marks my 10th year in education. I have primarily worked with students with mild learning disabilities in reading, writing, and math ranging from Kindergarten through 8th grade. I have had the honor of working in collaboration with general classroom teachers in an inclusive model where we could co-teach together as a team to meet the needs of every student. I enjoy watching the process of learning occur in children and celebrate every small step and success that a student achieves. Sincerely, Ms. Austin
I have earned a Bachelor's Degree and Master's Degree in Human Resources from Ottawa University. I am currently attending the Arizona State University post graduate college of Social and Human Evolution studying Anthropology.
