Toni Arellano

Hola! My name is Antonia Arellano (Toni) and I’m a Preschool teacher at Naranca. I have been teaching for 26 years and this is my 16 year here at Naranca and I’m very proud to be part of this amazing school! It is on honor and there is no place else I’d rather be! Hoping to retire from here! I received my AA degree in Child Development at Grossmont Community College.

I wanted to be a teacher as long as I remember. One of the best parts of being a teacher is watching children learn and grow in all different areas. I believe children learn through play and the preschool is the foundation of our future! Along with the opportunity of building a relationship with all the families.

When I am not in the classroom I enjoy zumba, theme parks, the beach, traveling and spending time with my family.
