Debora Mititelu, Leader Teacher


I would like to take a few moments to introduce myself. My name is Mrs. Mititelu and I will be your child's teacher this year. I have a Master of Arts in Education and a full credential for elementary education. As an educator, I value the opportunity that I will have to teach your child the requirements he/she will need to complete by the end of this school year successfully. Your child's success in my classroom is my number one priority.

Hello, My name is Laurie Johnson. I am so excited to be teaching Kindergarten here at COA. The staff, parents, and students are all so Amazing. I graduated from American River College with an A.A. in Early Childhood Education then transferred to California State University Sacramento graduating with my BA and Multiple Subjects Credential in 2008. It has always been a passion of mine since I was a little girl to be a teacher. I love connecting with my students and helping them to become lifelong  learners. I believe that every child can succeed. It is important to me to foster a love for learning in a positive and nurturing environment. When I am not working I enjoy spending time with my son, our dog, family and friends, as well as taking day trips, and traveling to the ocean. I’m looking forward to a wonderful year!
